I'm against the flu shots.

Not enough testing was done. No one even knows the correct dosage to give for sure. Our kids will be the first ones to get the shoots. The vaccine is coming from a foreign country I understand and also don't you think the pharmaceutical companies are making big bucks from foreign countries off of our kids? I have a list of other reasons too, but note it's very possible the shots will be worse than the actual swine flu itself.
Stop the whining

Actually, it was the media that blew the H1N1 swine flu matter out of proportion. Government tried to keep it in perspective, but the headline writers and TV anchors insisted on inciting panic.

Is it just me, or have the Bulletin's editorials gotten terribly off-track since they downsized? There's really no opinion in this editorial (and many others the Bulletin writes)-- it's just a rehash of a bunch of quotes and facts.

The vaccine is being produced by Baxter International. They're based out of Illinois and produced the vaccine for the Avian flu as well. Shady company. In the past, they have been accused of intentionally mixing live viruses into their vaccines. According to the safety protocols, it could not have been an accident.

People, are you SURE you want your children and loved ones to be guinea pigs and take the H1N1 vaccine? You really don't know what's in it. There's a good chance the vaccines are serving as vehicles for something else. I think this media hype is serving to scare the populace into voluntarily taking something they don't want or need.
