Uninformed people in many parts of the world are still being vaccinated against H1N1 swine flu, despite mounting evidence that the vaccine does not work, that the whole "pandemic" was a hoax, and that the vaccine is more dangerous than the virus.
And beware, the H1N1 vaccine is now often incorporated with the annual flu shot. Be informed!
Swine Flu is a hoax, but the vaccine could kill you!

Being Diabetic, my Doctor recomended it for me, and I did so.
I have a very hard time with the flew and my Lungs, and he has seen me sick like that, so he recomended it, and I did.
Hi Dutchman 1951. I was reading your reply abiut the flu shot, and your statement was that you are a diabetic and your doctor recommended you get the shot so you did. If I were you I would do a google search to find out what is in the flu shot. Here are a few of the ingredients formaldhyde, mercury, acetone ( finger nail polish remover ), aborted baby tissue, and other crap. The death rate from the flu has virtually remained the same year after year in spite of the rise in the people taking the shot.
Many people have died from the shot, and many have gotten the flu from taking the shot.
As far as your doctor recommending that you take the shot, remember doctors recommended that people take vioxx, and 60,000 of them died,
That's more people than were killed in the Vietnam war.
My motto is "Your Health Is Your Own Responsibility". Wish you the best
Hi Yeast Cure Now. Great response - I love your motto! I actually did a little series on my own blog called "Be Your Own Health Advocate" because my experience has been that it's easy to make serious health mistakes by following doctor's orders. Most doctors are heavily instructed and influenced by the pharmaceutical companies (and yes, profit is their highest objective - I empathize with brimancandy's response below).
I have an autoimmune disease and while on treatment my old doctor recommended the flu shot as well. I didn't get it then and still don't for many of the reasons you mention, and I've been just fine.
i have never had a flu shot in my life! neither have any of my children! we usually do just fine during flu season, but we are obsessive-compulsive when it comes to germs so we keep everything very clean!
I won't be getting a flu shot. I remember the first time around when they did this with the whole swine flu thing back in the 1970s. They scared people into spending money on these shots, and then it was never talked about again.
But, the hospitals and Pharmacies raked in big bucks doing it.
People say that the shots are free. They are, but only to certain people. If you do not fit the profile of someone who they want to give it to you, they tell you to go to your local pharmacy and buy the shots which are not cheap.
If there is so much urgency, and fear around the spread of this flu, why wouldn't the government give the shots away? And, insist that every person gets one? I'll tell you, because it's just another way for them to pump money into financially strained hospitals, and pump millions to the people in the medicine business.
Just look at all the drugs that don't work, and all the ones that are on the market that are constantly being pulled because of their deadly side effects. Yet, there is always someone pushing for you to take it, wether it is going to help or not.
I'm sorry, but I am a bit tired of this whole medicine guessing game. It is almost like we are all test rats, and, if some of us die in the process of making medicine companies rich, they will consider that a good thing.
I had mine, which was a combination jab. I see from your post you linked the Daily Mail!!!!! An hysterical 'rag' if ever there was>
And even more uninformed people are spreading nonsense about Guillain-Barre Syndrome and vaccines.
One of our patients is suffering with Guillain-Barre and he's convinced that getting the flu shot caused his condition. Right now his paralysis is in his legs, hasn't spread. It is definitely possible that a vaccine can trigger Guillain-Barre syndrome, but rare.
In any case, the hosptal where I work and most hospitals, require employees to get the shot or lose their job. So ..... I'll be getting the seasonal definitely. I'll decide about the swine. But last year I got both. And except for mild cold symptoms, I spent the season caring for my patients, rather than being one.
Yes, GB is extremely rare. But dying from flu is not so rare. That's why I objected to the OP.
I know ... the dying part definitely scared me enough that even if my job didn't require the shots, I'd get them anyway. I had asthma when I was younger - grew out of it but I'm 48 now; always afraid it might rear its head again. Having my tubes filled with all that mucus from respiratory illness is dangerous.
Read this about the dangers of vaccines, for starters . . .
And if you or your doctor can prove the H1N1 vaccine is safe, go ahead and win yourself $10'000
http://www.naturalnews.com/027985_H1N1_ … afety.html
The vaccine is safe and I got my shot without a moment's hesitation--the chance of a complication are miniscule compared to the risk of the flu. H1N1 is quite real, and like any flu, potentially fatal.
I haven't had the flu shot in years, but I also haven't had the flu in years either.
I suppose there is nothing wrong with a little Darwinian self-selection.
But the disdain for and general ignorance of science is worrisome.
I am currently administering the Flu and pneumonia vaccines. I agree that the "pandamic" was a hoax but the flu is real. We have all either experienced it or have known someone who has.
The vaccine contains INactive or a dead virus, so catching the flu from getting vaccinated is a myth. It takes approx 2 weeks to take full effect, therefore if you are already carrying a virus you will get sick.
The 2010-2011 flu vaccine protects against three different flu viruses: an H3N2 virus, an influenza B virus and the H1N1.
Regarding Guillain Barre Syndrome? Most people who get Guillain-Barre syndrome do so after having a bacterial or viral infection. Very VERY few have been connected to the flu vaccine.In fact, the last associated death from GB and the flu shot was in 1976!
Although GB is unfortunate, it usually reverses itself. In fact, the CDC states that the probability of getting GB from a flu shot is one out of 1 million vaccinated persons.
Seriously, the choice is yours as with any treatment. The real thing is to research ANY treatment before doing it and be well informed.
Thank you for this post PaulaHenry. I'm a nurse support tech and I still hear health professionals spreading negative info about the flu shot. For the bad that could happen, the good outweighs it tenfold.
You are aware, of course, that these vaccines have never been properly tested, that they contain adjuvants and other substances toxic to the human body, and that many people have died after being vaccinated?
As for doctors - ask your doctor to show you a list of what is in the vaccine, and ask him to produce some evidence that it is safe. He won't know be able to.
You are also aware, of course, that only about 15'000 people died IN THE WHOLE WORLD from A1H1 virus? Pandemic? What pandemic?
If you choose to take the flu shot that is your prerogative, but take a look below first . . .
10 things you’re not supposed to know about the swine flu vaccine
http://www.naturalnews.com/z026717_swin … ccine.html
H1N1 Vaccine Ingredients,
The following are the ingredient lists, warnings and side effects for the H1N1 vaccine
Not one scientific study has ever established the long-term safety of adjuvants and none have ever been approved for use in vaccines for humans.

Yes, I get one every year, and nothing bad has happened. Some times I even snort it up my nose.
This is my first time having the flu shot. I'm a teacher and my doctor recommends one every year. Usually I turn it down, but I did not this time.
Never had one, never will. I'd rather have the flu. People are so heavily medicated these day their bodies have no chance of building immunities to any germ that happens along the way.
Have you had your flu shot yet?
I haven't had a flu shot in decades and apparently my immune system has no need for it either.
Well I did not get one this year, I got the flue and it made me sick, caused other illness and I have not shaken it all off yet.
I will definitely not make that mistake again!
This year's annual flu vaccine has three strains - one is apparently the swine flu vaccine which many people were not keen on taking last year. Food for thought before you decide to take your annual flu jab.
I got mine a week ago Monday along with my allergy shots.
Being a Kaiser patient, the flu shot was free (they are offering them free to all Kaiser members).
I came down with a cold last Friday night. Still have it 8 days later!
Can I blame being injected with DEAD VIRUSES for causing me to get sick? I choose not to it doesn't feel like the flu. And if this is the only illness I get this season, I'll be happy (and healthy, of course).
Whether or not you get a shot, H1N1 is not a hoax. Not being immunised against the flu is an order of magnitude more likely to kill you than a vaccine is. for most people both risks are so small that it doesnlt really matter, but the amount of misinformation out there is crazy and reduces the 'herd immunity' that protects our vulnerable old and young people from being exposed. Once vaccination rates dips below about 85%, flu infant mortality in a community goes up.
I'll pass. Flu shots bother me. There's something about injecting a foreign substance into my body over a sickness that I'm not even ailing from.
The best preventative measure is in personal hygiene. Exercise sanitary practices. Take care of yourself mentally and physically. My immune system can pulverize any pansy flu.
If people want to get the shots, though, I'm not going to criticize their choice. That's up to them. I was just getting sick of hearing about the damn swine flu every day on the news.
I just got my flu shot a few days ago, I don't like having any kind of needle and almost always get sick afterwards though not flu just a cold. This year I didn't get sick at all best I've felt after any jab. I think that the risk of serious illness or death from having a vaccine and the risk of the illness itself should show that it's worth taking. However if you're not at risk of flu causing you serious problems I can understand why you wouldn't get the vaccine, it's not really needed if you have a strong immune system. Flu can and does kill, people should be protected. Profit is a big deal so if you don't need it great don't spend the money but you need to weigh the benefits for people in the high risk categories.

Every winter season the doctor asks/tells me to 'get a flu shot.' This got me to thinking...How many of us actually got ours?

Would you get the flu shot if you haven't had the flu or the shot in at least 20 years?

Six days after allowing my Doctor to talk me in to a flu shot guess what happened? That's right. I came down with the flu. I've heard that if this happens it means we already have the virus and the shot just accelerates the process. Doctor warned me that because of my age I...

I did a quick poll on a Swine Fly vaccine hub, and almost 70% of the people who responded are not getting a shot - OK so it's only out of 19 people so far - but is that representative of the Hub community? I for one won't be - but we're still talking to the doctor's regarding my pregnant daughter!

I'm a nurse working for a major healthcare company. However, I am only into natural health stuff. I give injections and medications to patients that I would never want to take myself. Now...my job is making the Flu vaccine mandatory. I already refused the shot and they are making me wear a monkey...

There has been a lot of debate with doctors, researchers, politicians and so on....Important questions arise such as:* Who should or should not take the vaccine* Should you take the flu shot or H1N1 vaccine* Should it be mandatory* Who are high risk people* What happens if we as a world population...
