Should I take the Swine Flu Vaccine?
I'm really scared about the swine flu vaccine. I'm also not very sure I should take it. My mom got a piece of paper indicating about the Swine Flu Vaccine and it was said I should go to this certain website to know what they put into the vaccine. So as curious as I was I looked up the website and I never knew they had the swine flu vaccine that contained mercury! I looked up swine flu vaccine on yahoo answers to find out about mercury and it seems to be a deadly thing. I'm really scared to take it since tomorow my dad is probably taking me to get it. Is it bad vaccine? Am I going to die or something? I heard this vaccine is just new so I'm not too convince about it.
I'm also wondering if this vaccine could kill you. Did anyone died from it after taking this vaccine?

i got the vaccine on friday with my cousin, we are both 14 bacause our moms made us. then on saturday we both had high fevers and now i am still sick


Harriet
I just got the vaccine last Monday...no problems whatsoever! :)

Also, canned tuna fish actually contains more mercury than the vaccine...it won't hurt you! Trace amounts!


Spots^..^B4myeyes
weigh the risks and benefits. all vaccines have risks.

i have read accounts of ingredients like squalene (which has not been approved by the FDA for use in the USA), and themerisol (mercury)

place your bet. take your chances.

ask for the thermersol-free, non-live vaccine for best results


Hoshiko is Team Jacob
well if ur really scared, then take it
im not taking it

I have not heard of anyone dying but it has caused major problems in people. It is triggering things that they otherwise never would have known they had like not being able to walk or talk anymore.

My whole family got swine flu its not as bad as it has been made out to be. It last about a week in kids and about 2 in adults...it is just like the normal flu but medicine doesnt really help you feel better. It just has to run its course. People are dying from it because of a medical condition they already had or from not taking care of themselves after getting sick, they get ammonia which is what is killing most people. I personally will not get the vaccine it has not been properly tested.


. . .
People die from all kinds of vaccines. It is just part of it.


Odile
It is a good vaccine. I got my jab today.

Mercury is used in many vaccines in minute amounts, and it is also found in such common foods as canned tuna.

I have given over a million doses of vaccine and nobody has died or suffered serious adverse consequences.

The benefits outweigh the risks.

I'd say don't really worry about getting it unless you have an underlying condition (see the CDC's list of underlying conditions; old age, 6 months or younger, pregnancy, work in the medical field, heart disease, lung/respiratory disease, asthma, liver disease, etc...) I haven't HEARD of anyone dying from it, but that doesn't mean much. People can take in a certain amount of mercury without dying. Did you know that there is mercury in nearly all fish? But it's so little in the types that we eat that, well, obviously, we haven't died from it. :) But yes, I am like you in the fact that I'd like to see it more - used? Known? Common? - before taking it.

I don't feel the swine flu is that bad anyways, not like it's hyped up to be. What, about 1,000 people have died of H1N1 in the US? 36,000 die yearly from the seasonal flu. I had the swine flu back in the beginning of June. Funny thing is, I thought I just had a cold, or my seasonal allergies were acting up because of the quick temperature swing. So, resultantly, I went figure skating with a fever of 103, never even realizing it. xD They put me on TamiFlu because I have a heart condition, and I felt better within 48 hours. The stupid thing is that the CDC kept me out of school for, what....like a week, I think? Even after being on TamiFlu. Once you take an antibiotic, you are no longer contagious 24-48 hours after the first dose. So I just don't get that, but whatever.

Now, when you DO get the vaccine, be careful about which one you get. There are two forms; the shot and the nasal spray. The shot contains a dead virus. This is the one they give to people with underlying conditions, because the nasal spray has a live, modified virus, which has a slight chance of getting you infected, which would only be increased in someone with an underlying condition. If you DON'T have an underlying condition, I think either one would do.

Good luck!

Every injection they ever made between the 1920s and the 1980s contained organic mercurial compounds as its multidose preservative to prevent bacterial growth in the multidose vial after extraction of each dose. Its well established technology and no one ever reported a problem in those times. However, as our manufacturing abilities grew it became possible to mass produce sterile preservative free single dose injections which is how most injections now come. Unfortunately, the potential for the flu vaccine to wipe of 3.2 % of the world's population means we need to speed up the packaging of the vaccine into multidose vials ( i.e we can put 10 doses in one vial as againsts making ten unit dose syringes at 10 times the cost in time).

Mercury toxicity is misunderstood. Organic mercurials have an un reactive mercury atom bound covalently within the structure and are simply metabolised to hydroxyaromatic water soluble compounds and excreted in urine. Mercury vapour, the vapor of the raw metal is poisonous, as demonstarted by the mad hatters in Alice in Wonderland who used mercury to stiffen their hat brims and developed mercury psychosis. Mercury salts are somewhat poisonous and were withdrawn from use as antibacterials for venerial diseases after the discovery of antibiotics which were more effective ( The old joke was after "After a night on Venus you need two nights on Mercury"). Mercury salts were also used as diuretics so we have a long long history of toxicity knowledge with the 3 forms of mercury ( Pure Metal, Salts and Organic compounds). While you will get some tragedies arising from reaction to the immunostimulant adjuvant component of the vaccine ( necessary to ensure a major generation of immunity to the virus) your odds of reacting so extremely to the vaccine are about 1 in 80,000 as against 1 in 33 of dying of swine flu if it is as bad as the 1919 flu. Mercury will not be the problem but rather evolution as some people just simply react to the adjuvant. Thats as safe as they can make it. Vaccines and good nutrition have basically saved millions of lives eg in the 1920s 1 million children worldwide died of measles and now hardly anyone does

ok harriet p is a bit naive. its one thing to ingest mercury and a whole different thing to main line it into the blood stream. when you do that you bypass all the bodies natural defenses. personally i dont get vaccinated for anything. its up to you. there is no scientific basis whether or not they actually work. the same amount die every year from the seasonal flu with or with out the vaccine. the big pharmaceutical companies who have been sued many times for not disclosing vital information and actually killed people from that gross negligence are the ones who continue to suppress the truth behind the dangers of these vaccines. i wouldnt. your immune system works as long as you take care of it. we are not made to get injections like this every year. we have a system that works and that system fights off diseases like the swine flu. the people dying all have underlining medical conditions that contributed to their demise. the swine flu alone hasnt killed one person. and even the ones that have other medical conditions are not to get vaccinated for risk of serious reactions even death. id avoid it if i was you. do more research before trusting the government with your health.

If your parents insist on you getting the vaccine they must think it is safe. We didn't get the swine flu vaccine but instead I am following the suggestion of a doctor who is head of the Nuclear Medicine Department and also is a specialist of Thyroid conditions. He says if you follow these very important steps that are simple it will act in the same way as having the vaccine to prevent getting the H1N1 virus. (swine flu). Wash your hands very frequently and keep them clean. Do not touch your face except only to feed yourself. Gargle twice a day at least with warm salt water. Cleanse your nasal passages with Q-tips dipped into warm salt water and do this at least once a day. Drink as much warm water as you possibly can and other fluids to act in the same way as Gargling except in the reverse direction to cleanse off your tongue and pass through your throat and into the stomach where it cannot survive or proliferate into your system and cannot cause you any further harm. Take Vitamin C supplements with Zinc to insure a faster absorption into your system and also eat a lot of Vitamin C enriched foods to help boost your immunity system and fight off any viruses. My family and I have been using these simple steps and feel very well and I believe it will honestly help you too. The fact that the doctor said it will be the same as getting a vaccine is very important and I feel safe using this method. Hope this will help you too.

hell no i would never let anyone inject a deadly compund directly into my blood stream. kick and scream and scratch, do everything you can to resist getting injected

Do you believe that Fox news is truthful?

If so don't take it.

If you are smart, ignore the scaremongers and get it.
