Millions refused the H1N1 shot last year, so now they combine it with the yearly flu shot. I personally don't want anything to do with it. With Bill Gates statement earlier this year about vaccines and health care, we all should be a little leary about it.


OKLAHOMA CITY — For those concerned about the impending flu season, the government will be making the seasonal flu vaccine available again this year.
Except this year, there is a difference -the normal seasonal flu vaccine will be combined with swine flu (H1N1) vaccine as well.

Seasonal, H1N1 flu vaccine to be combined this fall



Gates made his remarks to the invitation-only Long Beach, California TED2010 Conference, in a speech titled, “Innovating to Zero!.” Along with the scientifically absurd proposition of reducing manmade CO2 emissions worldwide to zero by 2050, approximately four and a half minutes into the talk, Gates declares, "First we got population. The world today has 6.8 billion people. That's headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent."

Don't get it then. I got the H1N1 vaccine because I work with young children. We actually had a student in the county below us die of H1N1. I was not going to risk having my child get H1N1.

Pretty sneaky and slimey way to get that H1N1 into people's systems.
I wonder how they will advertise this.

Didn't get it before, won't get it now. Good handwashing practices and staying away from sick people have worked well for the past 15 yrs. YMMV

You're right, it's so sneaky. Announcing to everyone they are combining the two together is a stealthy way of tricking people.

They reccommend elderly, people with medical problems, and the very young to get the seasonal. Gates has always been about population control.

actually they are REcombining the H1N1 flu vaccine with the seasonal vaccine. the H1N1 virus is a strain of influenza A, and the influenza A vaccine was removed from the seasonal flu vaccine two years ago.

as for getting a flu shot, sorry i wont get one. the last time i got a flu shot i was required to by the school system, and i got the damn flu!!!!

Oh really..link please to this public announcement ?
What do the signs at the clinics and supermarkets and drug stores say ?
Seasonal flu and H1N1 ?

The OP link is to a state watchdog site..hardly "announcing to everyone".

I had a really bad flu, this time, and I will do anything to avoid the accompanying bronchitis, and choking cough. It was like asthma, hayfever, pneumonia, and a bad cold on top of the other stuff. Never again. It lasted a month. We forget hell when it is safely behind us. This was no ordinary flu.
