well sorry about the unwanted shot, but it seems (as you said) the education department is to blame, not your school. and besides, despite the whole sickening injection part, getting the vaccine could be a very good thing.

Statistics say you are more likely to die from the REGULAR flu then swine flu, and I haven't had a flu vaccination in years. And I haven't once got the flu.

The reason they're doing all this is so they can try to quiet the panic that people have been experiencing. Perhaps it's going too far, but the theory is that once they do it people will stop complaining. It's the sort of plan that sounds better on paper. Really, if they had just told people what was going on to begin with, the whole scare could have been avoided. I suppose it's too late to point the finger now, though.

Personally, I'd rather take 10minutes off some random class to get a shot than spend a week in bed sick, but that's just me.

Swine flu seems like such a serious disease- I'm glad that they are trying to kill it!

I would go for the second option any day, as long as I'm only mildly sick .

I already had the swine flu. I've had several flus worse than it.

And I do have a school worth hating... our 8th grade teacher is an utter moron.

It's just a needle. All you can do is just endure the pain. Concentrate on something deep in your mind, and don't stop until it's over. I think that getting the shot is a good thing, if it helps against infection. Just because someone has never gotten the flu before, doesn't mean they can't get it this flu season.

Right when the vaccine gets to my town, my parents are going to make me get the shot, whether I like it or not. To be honest though, I don't really care about getting the shot.

This does seem to be true, but I heard that one of the reason people are panicking (besides because everyone else is) is that the swine flu is closley related to another very deadly flu, and there are worries about it mutating into something WAY worse than it is now. The chances are REALLY small, but hey, why not have a good panic? We've got nothing else to panic about!

well even if the H1N1 mortality rate is low, doesn't mean you shouldn't protect yourself.

Actually, they should pay more attention to serious diseases like AIDS and cancer.

They have no cure because scientists focus on making cures for easy diseases, to make money, instead of putting some more effort on the important ones.

The point is that if you can protect yourself from something, you should. And scientists aren't just wasting their time trying to make money, they are trying to find the cure for all diseases.

Or because they are legitimatly near-impossible to cure... (It's stupendously difficult to differentiate cancer cells from normal cells, for instance.)
