Don't do it. The FDA is not to be trusted with this one. Go for the standard flu shot. I got mine today.

I got my normal flu shot while I was in the hospital a month ago and my daughter had it  a few days later but I am not willing to have the H1N1 shot unless they would be certain that it has no harmful side effect I think they still try it and they are not certain yet

I will NOT be getting a flu shot at all. I am allergic to flu shot.

 :wave: I got mine Monday. I go in a nursing home almost every day so I thought I better get one. It won't keep me from getting it but maybe it won't be as bad.

Most of us won't be able to get it anyway-the people getting it first will be immunocomprimised, young, and elderly.  Hopefully by the time they get enough of the vaccines out there to immunize everyone, the Swine flu won't be as much of a threat. 
It's the same thing as the normal flu shot, just with this particular strain in it, so it's not really anything to be scared of unless you're allergic to the components of the shot.  I work at a doctor's office, so I'll be getting one, but I'm not really looking forward to it!

I dont have insurance so I guess there would have to be a place that sold it for a resonable price in order for me to get that shot!

I will choose not to get the shot either.

I feel at the age of 31 with no medical condition places me in the low-risk category, so the shots will better serve those that need it.

Good fortune to us all
