It's NOT very clear!

I don't know about you, but I am getting so sick of all this Swine flu (H1N1) controversy. Sometimes they make it so hard to come to a good old fashioned educated decision about our health at hand. I know there are good points on both behalves--to vaccinate or not to vaccinate--but how are you suppose to make a clear decision about what to do when everyday the media keeps adding onto the drama of it all. I think I am going to go with my gut feeling and we will be getting a poke. I just am not sure that I want to take a chance and not try and prevent my little one from getting really sick. It is so crazy all of the things I keep hearing and how can you be sure what you are hearing is true? I mean we are talking about the media and they are not always true to the issues at hand. Recently someone told me that they heard that over two hundred people have died just from getting the vaccination alone. My husband and I both thought, "now really" that is something that that would be all over the news and we have not seen anything on this. But we still feel hesitant to vaccinate because how do we know for sure! There is always the thought of some conspiracy theory and they are just hiding all of bad effects of the vaccine. Really, if this many people have died, unless they are trying to control the population, I can't imagine they would keep giving it. Well going back to my gut and its feeling, I just can't imagine that it is a whole lot different from the regular flu vaccine.

I am interested, Will you be vaccinating?


  1. I think the media hypes everything up and blows it out of proportion. I'm sure you guys would be fine if you vaccinated. I probably won't get the vaccine, but mainly because I am not the biggest fan of needles!

  2. I agree! Our kids are getting the vaccine at school but not the teachers? Hello? I dont think I would get it anyways but it would be nice if they offered!
