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.

As a transplant recipient my doctors pretty much demand that I get the flu shot - I did get the standard one, but they have not come up with a recommendation for us on the H1N1 as far as I know.

I've been extremely fortunate to have not gotten the flu in years and years.

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

I guess you didn't get your check from the lawsuit then?

Airborne Health, a Bonita Springs, Fla.-based herbal supplements firm, has agreed to pay $23.3 million to settle a class-action lawsuit brought against the company for falsely claiming its vitamins prevented colds.

I want to sue Vitamin C also...:)

Vitamin C was first touted for the common cold in the 1970s. But despite its widespread use, experts say there is very little proof that vitamin C actually has any effect on the common cold.

lol anyone who is worried about inoculations leading to mental retardation in their children should probably realize their child is already at a disadvantage because he/she is being born to parents who are dumb enough to believe that poo.

Ah, thanks JR, I neglected to debunk that airborne garbage.

As I said earlier, I kinda got bogged down in the depth of the poop that is this thread.

By all means folks, feel free to not get the flu vaccine, assuming you are a healthy not superyoung or superold person. It likely won't make much difference whether you get ol' fashioned flu or the H1N1 variety, you won't box.

But please don't subject your children to preventable disease and complications.

They are innocent and should not suffer because of your right to tinfoilhattery.

A single 0.5 mL dose of Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine contains sodium chloride (4.1 mg), monobasic sodium phosphate (80 mcg), dibasic sodium phosphate (300 mcg), monobasic potassium phosphate (20 mcg), potassium chloride (20 mcg), and calcium chloride (1.5 mcg). From the manufacturing process, each dose may also contain residual amounts of sodium taurodeoxycholate (≤ 10 ppm), ovalbumin (≤ 1 mcg), neomycin sulfate (≤ 0.2 picograms [pg]), polymyxin B (≤ 0.03 pg), and beta-propiolactone (< 25 nanograms).

some of you want to put that crap in your bodies? Oh wait, you also probably put crappy processed foods in your bodies.

The real vaccine is eating correctly.

Oh noes, not SODIUM CHLORIDE!!!!

Do you know what a mcg is, or not?

Do you know how many mcgs of residual chemicals are in the magic foods you eat to protect you from rubella, rubeola, polio, measles, mumps, etc?

The answer is, you have no idea.

The issue is the amount. 1 microgram= .001 milligram

And those trace chemicals vs. getting a dread disease is a laughable perversion of concern.
