Has there been any studies that have shown the adverse reaction
to this H1N1 vaccine?

I do not agree with the national emergency

I don't get it. Every year, the seasonal flu kills about 36,000 people.

This swine flu has been shown to be less severe in symptoms and duration and it has only killed about 1000 people...

Why is this a national emergency if the seasonal flu isn't?

Normal influenza has already killed at least ten to a dozen times as many people as swine flu this year so why are we declaring H1N1 a national emergency? You can't answer that because its just plain stupid when you think about it, just like the American Government.
i never spoke to the wisdom or otherwise of declaring swine flu a national emergency, but i certainly could answer the question as to why vaccination against H1N1 is a good idea. however, you seem to already have all the answers you need. good luck with that.

Declaration of a national emergency cuts through red tape with respect to distribution and administration of the vaccine, getting it to the people who need it faster.

It's definitely not a national emergency...

But I guess there's no reason we can't make it one to help get the vaccine to where it needs to go... but it's a little over the top in my opinion
