Well last Thursday I had my swine flu injection for me I forgot I even had it. cool      The nurse who gave it too me was wonderful I never felt the injection and I have no side effects from it not even a sore spot where I received the needle. And come March which is the begginnings of fall for us here in Australia I will have my normal flu injection which I have been having for at least the last 10 years I have never had a reaction yet to the injection in fact ouwhole family will get a injection again this year. What is it too have a injectio compared to missing days of work due to being so sick with it. Now members of the family will also be getting the injection for the swine flu as well.

Kathy, I had both flu shots and I'm glad I did. Diane

I wish I could get flu shots, but I'm allergic to them. It's not eggs or what they think of, it's the sulfite preservative and gelatin (which also contains sulfite). I get flu symptoms - all over pain, fever, fever ... used to think I really had the flu.

I was forced to have a pneumonia vaccination a couple of years ago when I was hospitalized. I was told there was no sulfite in it, but they lied. (I looked it up later.) I reacted and had to beg for a single Benadryl. They wouldn't give me more, when the symptoms came back, so I had my husband bring me some Alevert.

I'm glad I didn't get it as it scared the heck out of me. The mercury content alone is enough to do serious damage to someone
with fibro let alone the detergents, live virus, formaldahyde to kill the virus (formaldahyde causes cancer), so all this together
makes a person rethink getting it. If I'm not mistaken Jesse Ventura did a segment on it on his show "Conspiracy Theory".
I haven't located it yet but definately searching as from what I hear he found a lot out about it.

I ended up getting both vaccines and had absolutely no problems at all.  I, too, am glad I did.
