We have got ours and so has our grandson and our son. Daughter-in-law is in her 2nd trimester pregnancy and will get it when the vaccine without the adjutant is available for pregnant women. This flu can be deadly for the young.

H1N1 is less likely, the older you are! Here's one where age is with us! Infants and very young children are most at risk, along with pregnant women. Then children age 12 - 24. Then adults age 25 -60. People over age 60 or so were exposed to the Spanish flu in the early - mid 50's, which is a precursor to this flu, and so are felt to have some immunity to it. Healthy people are as much at risk as those with chronic health problems. I'm in health care, and so at some point, it will be available to me. I'll get it when I can. I've already had my regular flu shot. One time have that nasty flu and missing a week of work while I coughed my toes out, was enough.
Keep up with the CDC website, for the latest news on it.

It's been on the news several times. The vaccine is being made at a Sanofi Pasteur facility in Stillwater, Pa. I did some work for them once, about 35 years ago. They've been at it quite awhile.

I noticed early on after joining that we are a "full service" organization. We not only take care of our Airstreams but each other as well! Not only do we rally at parks and campgrounds around the country and world, we rally around each other when the need is present. For instance, the thousands of posts and views over many, many months suggest many of us will never forget when Terry was severly injured while riding his scooter and the trials he and Marie have endured since the accident.

I'm leaning YES on the H1N1 because of past respirtory issues, but haven't totally decided as yet. I just thought I'd see what others had to say on the subject

No! absolutely not. Never.

Hi, I never get any flu shots and don't ever plan on it either. My wife got two and got sicker'n h3ll both times. My Dad worked at a medical building and the Doctor offered him a free shot, he declined. A few days later, most of the Doctor's staff were out sick after they all got their flu shots. One Doctor's opinion and statement was that if you were born before 1950 and are in good health/physical condition you won't need the shots. We are in good condition and shape for our age. Also when ever they create a shortage of anything, human nature, is for people to want it even more. This is another way to jump start the economy, selling shots. Keep clean, eat good foods, get off of your @$$, and move once in a while; This will do more for you than any shot will. [MY OPINION]

I had someone give me the oh-so-helpful advice that all I needed to do was get a 'mild' case of the flu, and then I'd be safe for the rest of the season. She didn't indicate how you were supposed to get a 'mild' case, as opposed to the one that kills you (or makes you really really sick for a couple weeks). She also thought Vitamin C was the answer if you did get it. If it were that simple, no one would ever die of it. Unfortunately, every year a lot of people do die, and this year there's twice as much chance of getting a flu, or if you really win the viral lottery you could even get it twice - the regular flu and the swine flu.

Well, here's another point of view....

I had the Swine Flu vaccine--twice--way back in the '70's, courtesy of Uncle Sam. We went thru this government scare of "The Flu" way back then. The first batches of the Swine Flu vaccine had problems and were quickly pulled from the market. The Prez ordered that all members of the military take the new, reformulated vaccine to prove that it was ready for the general public.

So here's my question, since I've already had the shot twice, does that make me more bullet proof that the rest of ye?

No H1N1 flu shot for us. We have no desire to be a medical experiment concieved in haste, hype and fear mongering.

It's going to wipe out the middle class! and the aliens that are controlling the governments have ordered them to do it (or else!) I think the media is just too much, anybody can see that! Thanks to the airstream way of optional living, we are far away enough from large groups of people and will remain that way. I heard those shots (some of them) had mercury...and to top that off they come up short...whats going on? This is (supposed) to be America. Everytime one of those loudmouthed commercials comes on TV I hit the mute button! Ha!Don't take me seriously, but we are not going to take it.

Flu shots for Wall Street stirs ire in New York

Thu Nov 5, 2009 2:30pm EST


By Bill Berkrot
NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York City health officials scrambled to explain themselves on Thursday following outraged media reports about bankers who got scarce H1N1 flu vaccines through their employers.
Although there is a longstanding arrangement for employers to provide seasonal flu shots to workers, the city health department was bombarded with calls and television reports about Wall Street workers jumping the line ahead of pregnant women and children.

Hmmmmmm...since we all know that Wall Street takes WAY too many risks...I guess this confirms that we should all avoid the H1N1 vaccine
