This is just like people who complain that they get sick after a flu shot or something. People's bodies react different. I have never had the flu and I am a pharmacy tech, that means I am around sick people a lot, especially during winter. There are precautions. We clean the counters and things that are used and touched daily, we wash our hands, and if really sick people come by we use antibacterial stuff (I know that over use can sometimes help spur the creation of super bugs or whatever). But anyway, I feel no need to get the shot. I have been sick before and got over them just fine. It is a slim chance that you might die from it. And as for kids, parents pump them full of medicine for every sniffle and cough. Kids are supposed to get colds and get over them, if you pump them full of stuff like ammoxicillin every single time they are sick, their body cannot learn to fight that sickness and it is actually worse for them. This doesn't mean they never need medicine, but if they are sniffling or coughing a bit, give them some oranges, kids vitamins, or orange juice, wrap them up in sweaters and blankets. Make sure they know that they need to wash their hands before eating and not to put their hands in their mouth all the time. Just general education of your kids can help them not get sick. Some people get sick every year. I get sick about every other year now as an adult. If people in my house are sick I start taking vitamin C and wiping stuff down. Also, don't lock yourself indoors with no light and the heater on, you're only creating a wonderful place for more bacteria to spawn and keep growing. We still leave the windows open a bit for fresh air and sunshine and wrap up in our pajamas and blankets.
So no, I wouldn't get the shot, and neither would anyone in my family. There's no need, I doubt I will die from it, I have never had the regular flu so I don't see myself getting a pig flu. People who are getting so ill from it could have already been sick and not known it yet, have weaker immune systems, body might not fight sickness so well because they take medicine for a lot of things, other medications or something they took before. You really just don't know, so it is personally up to you to asses the risk.
