The Swine Flu and YOU!

Please tell me what is up with the swine flu. The president declaring it a national epidemic?? Is it safe to go anywhere. Will we all die???

I am a pretty laid back mom and I generally only take my kids to the Dr if they are really sick or if I know they have an infection that wont clear on it's own.

I do not give my kids flu shots and refuse to give them a swine flu vaccination. I am just wondering if all of you know more than I do (which, believe me, is EASY to do). Fill me in. If your family has had it or if you know someone who has...let me know. Just curious. Thanks.

At the High School here there have been a lot of kids that have had it. Our neighbor had it for several days but is fine now. Also, the teacher that took my place at the Jr. High got it and was out for 2 WEEKS! That surprised me. I don't know what to think about the swine flu...but there is something fishy going on with it if you ask me.

The H1N1 vaccine, NO I will not get it, nor let my kids get it. But I will always get the flu shot. It's helped us NOT get the flu for over 2 years. That whole
H1N1 vaccine hasn't been tested. Plus I somehow think that the people who are getting it are going to have problems... maybe even die. Geesh. the govrt these days makes us believe some crazy stuff. But you never know. To tell you the truth, I don't really know. Just going off some crazy stuff I've heard at my kids school, and news, and just plain tougues waggin.

Who will ever know anything really. Everything is opinion and hear-say. My nieghbors kids had it. It wasn't bad at all. She kept them in and kept the fever down really well with IB Profhen. The kids played all week and it didn't seem to be a big deal. We dont get the flu vaccines. We haven't had the flu either.
