Nope. Neither H1N1 or seasonal.

We've really thought about it, and my wife is preggo, but i think the risks of these things outweighs the rewards. Yall gettin them?

we are also now debating immunizations for the kid...seems to be a strong link between them and autism.

I never gotten a flu shot and probably never will. I believe flu shot is the biggest scam of all times. Flu constantly mutates so flu vaccine can never be exact match to a flu form out there. Many people who gotten a flu shot end up coming up with a flu the same season.

Got my son the seasonal. Not H1N1. Hasn't been tested on kids or pregos. The wife is pregnant. Not yet sure what to do. I've never gotten a flu shot but I might this year since I travel so much.

just drink airborne daily (or Vitamin C + Zinc), it will help a lot.

I had the swine flu shot in 76, all the hype was the same then. I have taken the seasonal on and off. I'm going to take the H1N1, the risk associated with this flu outweigh the risk of the innoculation.

Maybe it was an adverse reaction by your body to a flu shot. Flu shot is a small dose of flu virus, your immune system should have no problem of killing it and become immune to it. People that have a weak immune system can actually get very sick with a flu like symptoms.
