Why would anyone want to take the H1N1 vaccine when it is loaded with neurotoins that will cause brain damage or kill you with all the poisons in it?
Three days of fever and sore throats is a lot better then being dead. Most scientist and doctors won't take it and won't give it to their families. They no more then we do. Volunteer death sentence to control the population. Please lineup and volunteer.

They have more then enough vaccines but want you to get excited and volunteer faster to be poisoned by the neurotoxins in the vaccines. Baiting you into volunteering to die. Most people are stupid so they will take thw H1N1 vaccine. When they get brain disease they will wonder how come?

Everyone should take the H1N1 vaccine although it is filled with toxins. Then I will be the only few left with good health while the majority of the people are brain damaged and paralyzed by the exotic man made toxins. Women look so pretty when they are paralyzed.

During the Black Plague there were a group of thieves that stole from the corpse of the dead. When they were finally caught they were found to be herb merchants and were taking herbs to protect themselves from the disease.

Tese herbs have been determined to protect you from the flu and colds. Google "Thieves Herbs" and you will find them at various dealers, also "Oil of Oregano" will protect you from the flu too.

These are natural alternatives that have proven to work but not endorsed by the drug manufacturers and consequently the FDA, google the results in...they work!

I don't think any real double blind studies have shown that any flu vaccines actually prevent the flu in any significant way.

These viruses mutate so quickly that each years flu vaccine is just a wild shot gun guess and what might be out there. They usually admit that they were way off.

We need a good study in which one state gets the real vaccine and another gets a placebo, then compare populations flu rates.

That study has probably never been done because 25 bucks times every man woman and child in the country is some serious bucks.

I am really in awe (not an easy thing to do) at the HYPE the state is bringing on through the media. They are doing their best to get more "sheeple" to accept a vaccine they say is needed. If you strengthen your immune system, you have no "need" for any shots. I watch my daughter, now in college..NEVER had shots, in good health and never sick. Then I see all these little kids running around with perpetual running noses and coughs. sheeesh..how come li'dat?

I'm guessing you're a Hippie - you're probably vegetarian, practice yoga, don't take a bath regularly, walk around barefooted, and bring your own reusalbe, hemp shopping bag when you go shopping at Down-to-Earth. You probably also home school your kids, distrust any government agency, and feed your kids celery sticks and organic peanut butter.

I've been taking the flu shot for over 10 years. I already got my H1N1 shot too. I'm not sure what kind of paralysis you are talking about, but I have not experienced this. In fact, I'm going on a 10-mile hike on Saturday, so I hope the paralysis doesn't hit me before then.

People like you constantly think there is some kind of conspiracy going on. You probably think Mother Theresa also had an ulterior motive for doing the things she did. RELAX and stop acting like a fanatical freak! Sheeesh!

It would be interesting to learn how many State health officials will be inoculated?

It's amazing how many people are still stuck in the 18th Century. Here we are in the 21st Century, yet people still think herbs can combat the bubonic plague?!

And for those who don't believe in flu vaccinations: Do these folks even have a clue as to what makes immunization work?

The shots don't make you immune. It triggers an immunity response, and the defenses that your own body produces is what protects you from the disease.

So if your body just happens to react poorly -- maybe you have a weakened or overactive immune system -- your results might not be as predicted.

But it has nothing to do with "toxins" in the flu shots. It's not because of mysterious vapors, humors, spirits, evil odors or ancient curses.

Get educated. Instead of spreading idiotic rumors, find out what a couple centuries of careful studies have discovered about human health and disease control.

Actually she did. She was trying to get good press coverage to counter all the rotten stories the Enquirer published when she was a technical consultant on "The Flying Nun".:-)

You have just enough knowledge to be dangerous to yourself.

You simple lesson only works if you know exactly what virus you are dealing with and if it is a virus which does not mutate quickly.

Flu viruses are notorious for mutating. The annual flu shot is a shotgun combination of all the strains the docs "think" might show up next year.

They admit they are usually wrong.

And is there any evidence that US citizens get the flu more than people from africa even though Americans probably get flu shots 10 to 1 more than Africans? I doubt it.

I completely understand vaccines for polio, chicken pox, maybe HPV. But I think the corporations are taking real science and expanding it into the flu virus area with no proof that it does anything.

I think it's all a scam.

Show me some proof that FLU vaccines actually have helped?

I'm guessing you're pretty awfull to look at - you're probably a fan of McDonalds, watch the Flintstones on TV, don't take a bath regularly, too fat to walk around, and use lots of plastic bags when you go shopping at Safeway. You probably also collect sexually explicit movies of kids, belong to the Teamsters, and feed your kids plenty of processed foods and sugar, and you feel cancer is just a very unlucky occurance and has nothing to do with lifestyle.

Well good luck stand in line for your flu shot, even though there are proven methods to prevent it, watch TV and watch the drug ads, don't believe their disclaimers and you'll live to 45 maybe 48.
