Have you had your swine flu vaccination yet?

By GnT 3 November 2009 33

Health minister Katy Gallagher has had one, and wants you to go and get one too. I’ve had one – as a parent of young children I really don’t want them to get sick. From my experience, most doctors are bulk-billing if you are just going for the jab, which itself is free. So there’s no excuses – make an appointment now to protect yourself and those most vulnerable in our community.

I read that this particular innoculation was developed as a de-population agent in the Ukraine. Also there is this link: http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=5ba_1257353522

had both ‘flu and piggy ‘flu shots as part of o/s travel checks recently – was keen to have latter as have a new astro-junior now and astress will be jabbed – with her whooping cough shots – this week. as deckard astutely points out, first wave of spanish ‘flu was mild enough, but there was a kick in the tail and in second helpings. happy enough to have this to protect mini-astro and me from such possibilities. i felt fine apre shots

to the nay-sayers; i have insurance, too, but don’t plan on dying yet, and this seems analogous.

Had the swine flu vax on wednesday. Feel fine. Miracle!
My doc usually charges but the vax was bulk billed.
Arm a little sore but nothing else. YEY!

I didn’t have to book to have the swine flu injection, only for the appointment, anyway there are much more serious medications to take than that, eg; malaria tablets, I have some serious side effects, which I was medivaced home, and years later have a disease from it, and guess what, my records have disappered from defence,fancy that, they would be liable.

Yeah, but Spanish Fly helped recreate the losses caused by its flu.

I wonder if Pig Flies will do the same thing?

If it’s the GP cost you’re worried about, I heard on 666 ABC that GPs are supposed to bulk bill the swine flu vax – which means no out of pocket cost. But you still have to book an appointment because it comes in multi-dose vials (I think 16 doses per vial) that must be used within 24 hours, so doctors prefer to book in a block of vaccinations to use up the full vial and not waste any doses.

Nope. I am pro chlidhood imunisation but No way am I going to get a very new vacine against a disease that would not be all that serious for me IF I was to contract it.

The 1st wave of the Spanish Flu was relatively mild mostly killing those in the high risk groups. The 2nd wave killed 100s of millions.

I had Swine Flu in July, does that mean that I’m immune to it now (like chicken pox) or no… or could it of mutated since then.
Am I at risk still?

Nope. I am pro chlidhood imunisation but No way am I going to get a very new vacine against a disease that would not be all that serious for me IF I was to contract it.
