Should I get the H1N1 vaccine? I’ve had a few opportunities to be vaccinated present themselves. And a friend of mine, who took advantage of it, urged me to do it. He and his nine-year-old son got vaccinated (with the nose spray, not the shot) and his son is now sick with a low-grade fever or flu (not sure which). He, himself, only had a headache for a day and feels great.
I think I’m going to do it, but I’m also wary of becoming that one anomaly in the statistics who gets the full blown thing and gets really sick. The overwhelming odds are, that won’t happen. But what if? I don’t believe in the H1N1 hype. But I also see that some people are, indeed, dying of it–the two people on last Sunday’s “60 Minutes” were disturbing cases, indeed. (It’s far more scary than the video below, which is from a previous “60 Minutes” report.)
So, what should I do? What would you or will you do if you can get vaccinated?
