It seems as though we are bombarded everyday about the H1N1 virus these days. One can’t go 5 minutes watching the news without either a story about the shortage of the vaccine, the reported 19 deaths of young children, or the long lines of people lining up to acquire the vaccine.
Though it seems that I do not fall into the recommended age group, I do not have to ponder whether or not to participate in the mass of people attempting to be vaccinated. Every year my husband and I get our annual flu shots, but I wonder if I would get the new vaccine. The Swine flu peaked in Georgia as soon as the children went back to school in early August. It seems to be waning at this point.
Somehow I believe that the media has blown this story out of proportion
because they seem to do this with every mass story. Gee, the media has never done this before, right?
Bottom line…will you get the H1N1 vaccine? Will your family members be vaccinated? Do you believe we will experience a pandemic?
