My mom recently asked me if we were planning on getting vaccinated against the swine flu. My gut reaction was NO, but I hadn't really looked into it so I said so. Our pediatrician has never pushed the regular flu vax on Colin so I'm not sure if she would mention the swine flu vax either. Colin doesn't go see her again until he gets MMR at 15months (eek!) so you can bet money he won't get getting a swine flu vaccine at that time! Frankly, I think the swine flu is way over blown by the media and I am not alarmed by it. In fact I generally don't listen to anything about it...but my ears (well eyes) did perk up when I saw this... "Swine Flu Vax linked to Paralysis". So in answer to your question Mama, that is a big fat NO FREAKING WAY! Unless someone can convince me that the 1976 vax is vastly different than the new one and show me the research to prove that this one is safe.. oh right! They don't have to prove it is safe, just that it works! Right I forgot. Silly me.
I just found Dr. Sears' (author of The Vaccine Book) take on this issue if you are interested.
