Along with hearing so much about the swine flu in the media, I keep getting emails from friends asking if I am going to get the H1N1 vaccine for my children and myself.
Is it just my belief or are other people thinking that everyone is overreacting to the swine flu? Why is the media scaring the public?
It is a flu. So I ask, do you get the flu shot every year? If no, then I ask, why are you considering the H1N1 vaccine?
If you fall into one of the groups that is strongly recommended to get the H1N1 vaccine, it may be a good idea to get it. I believe that if a person has a strong immune system and is not pregnant, then getting the vaccine may not be necessary, especially if leading a healthy lifestyle that keeps a strong immune system.
