I was thinking this is good we are going to have a shot for it. But then it came across my mind. How us crohnies would be effect by the shot. Is even ok for us? plus with the meds most of us are on?! Like Nanner's said I'd like to see how the trail clinic goes (and even at that they probably are only testing this shot on 100% healthy people)
Isn't anyone a little worried with taking something thats so new?! I stop doing my flue shots about 2 years ago. Once I started remicade I've never had a flue or a cold. Most important no more pneumonia I had it for about 6 months with asthma no one ever told me there is pneumonia shot. I really need to switch hospital's and doctors I think.
How can a patien have pneumonia for so long with asthma with crohn's and not tell the patient about a pneumonia shot!!!! I'm so fustrated with the hospital and doctors I deal with.
I was getting the regular flu shot yearly, but it seemed like they could never guess the right flu strain for that year. So I felt it was more dangerous for me to stand in the hour and half line (here a lot of doctors don't have them) with people that could be sick, then get a shot that won't cover what's going around.
I'm leary about the swine flu vaccine. I don't think they've really had enough time to test it, and am not really wanting to be tested on. The swine flu does scare me though. I may just go the route of staying away from sick people the best I can, lots of hand washing, and seeing the doctor if I get sick.
