    Well, just cover your mouth when you sneeze. The virus might travel across the internet. :D

    Thanks for sharing that with us GekiDan.

    Will people here be getting the vaccine or do you have any concerns that it might do more harm than good?

    Its an interesting one. With the Flu killing so few people on its own is there a need for a vaccine to be spread to a wide population? A vast majority of people had other underlying health issues (at least this has been the case in the UK & Germany). Should the vaccine be distributed to just people with the most serious risk and the rest of the population then have the choice to purchase one if they would like.

    A vaccine will do a good temporary job, but will lead to the virus mutating again and coming back stronger the next time

    Personally I will not be getting a vaccine, just like I have never gone to the doctors to get a yearly flu shot.

    I'd also have some concerns regarding the vaccine and don't think I'll be getting it.

    Please note the admin note that I've added to the first post in this thread. Comments in this thread are based on opinions and if you have any health concerns you should contact a medical professional.

    Not matter what's happen, always take care our body and prevent ourself from H1N1.
    Nowadays, it is very important that we need to wear mask, wash our hand more frequent, try to avoid to go public place if not necessary. Also, keep a distance when talk to someone.

    Another important thing to be remembered is that go to see doctor once if feel sick

    According to what I heard in the news awhile ago, the priorities when the vaccine becomes available are the following people:

    Pregnant
    Aged or Old People
    Very young children
    People with multiple diseases

    Sigma, sounds like you are taking this seriously. Are you currently taking those precautions?

    GekiDan, they're the groups that are being given priority here in Ireland. Health care workers have also been added to the list, they are at risk because they obviously come into close contact with a lot of sick people.

    GP's here have started complaining that the Health Service have not consulted them re giving the vaccinations to their patients. Sounds like they are looking to get paid more money for providing the service and are trying to negotiate a higher fee. Unfortunately this may cause some delays in the vaccine roll out.

    If I'm not mistaken, according to the Dept of Health in our country, they already have funds realy to give the vaccine to all priority people for free, which I think is good.

    Giving the vaccine for free may actually save the government money. It will probably be cheaper to vaccinate everyone than to provide the health care required to Swine Flu sufferers, if they don't implement a vaccination programme.

    You are definitely behind the news.
    They always plan to make a vaccine every time a new virus comes out and make an epidemic across a country or the world.

    Yes. Stem cells can be used to cure any kind of diseases, although not all.
    For more info on how stem cells can cure cancer, visit the following site: http://www.cancercenter.com/stem-cells.htm

    I just read this news:
    On a poll, parents don't want their children to be injected with H1N1 vaccine. It is said that the parents are more concerned on the side-effects of the said vaccine which may hurt their children. Most of them also refused even though it will be given for free.

    According to health officials, that the swine flu vaccine is made the same way as seasonal flu vaccines that have been used for years. And no scary side effects have turned up in tests on volunteers, including children.

    Read the full report here:

    I know someone who went to their doctor recently and the doctor advised against them being vaccinated. That's only one doctor but it does make you think. I personally don't plan on getting the vaccine, although I'd be reasonably comfortable with the ordinary flu vaccine.

    H1N1 Vaccines are really needed in India, as there are many cases of it.
