H1N1 Vaccine Side Effects

In a recent survey it was found that many Americans are still cautious about the side effects associated with the H1N1 vaccine, including rare diseases. There are now more side effects reported, including very dangerous symptoms.

Various pregnant mothers who took the swine flu vaccine reported miscarriages. This and other dangerous side effects occurred within hours to days of having the vaccine.

Children who receive two H1N1 vaccines have found the 2nd injection causes more serious side effects. The 1st injection has mild side effects for both children and adults. These include redness and soreness where injected, and a runny nose. The 2nd injection side effects were fever, muscle pain, drowsiness and irritability. GlaxoSmithKline recently stated that the 2nd dose of the H1N1 shot is no longer necessary for children. This is still undecided as there is further discussion needed between GlaxoSmithKline and the European health authorities.

In Taiwan, middle school students recently received H1H1 shots. 46 students were sent to the hospital because of nausea symptoms. This may be attributed to nervousness.

Guillain-Barre syndrome is a common worry. There have been 6 cases which are associated with the swine flu vaccine. Guillain-Barre syndrome is where the body’s immune system attacks part of the peripheral nervous system. It may eventually lead to death.

The side effects the swine flu vaccine is most commonly reported to give a patient are pain, redness, and swelling where injected. Headaches, fevers, fatigue, and muscle aches are also somewhat common. These symptoms should go away within 2 days of the shot.

To decrease the possibility of side effects one should avoid getting the vaccination on an empty stomach. If you are still concerned, stay near the location where you received your shot for 30 minutes after completion to watch for reactions.

Low Supply and High Demand Create Long Lines For H1N1 Vaccinations

Unless you’ve been living in a cave somewhere, you probably know how busy the H1N1 vaccination clinics have been. The stories of waiting times of about 5 hours have been spreading across the internet, radio, and television. Part of this has to do with the large number of people going to get their shots, but another part is due to the supply being much, much lower than originally anticipated.

Drug manufacturers had told United States officials that 120 million doses would be available come October 1st. We are now into the first week of November and only 26.6 million doses have been shipped. Someone, somewhere, screwed up, big time.

When you estimate 120 million available doses, try to have at least somewhere close to that number. 110 million, 100 million, even 90 million, but 26.6 million? I think someone might need to go back to school an re-take a math course, maybe two. Either way I find this staggering difference in promised products and delivered products to be very unacceptable.

So, I have to urge everyone to really think if they need the shot right away. Maybe think about all the people that have a higher risk of dieing from the flu. They should be reeving the first vaccinations, but instead they are forced to wait in lines for hours, and even then they don’t always get the vaccine. So all I am asking is that you really make sure that if you’re going to get the H1N1 vaccine be one of those ‘high risk’ people.

Swine Flu, A National Emergency


President Obama has declared H1N1, or more commonly known as Swine Flu, a national emergency. The reason the President has declared a national emergency isn’t because the number of cases are increasing (even though they are). It isn’t because the Swine Flu has transformed into a super virus in an attempt to destroy humanity as we know it (thankfully, this hasn’t happened yet). No President Obama has declared a national emergency to help hospitals manage Swine Flu cases more effectively BEFORE there’s a major problem with overcrowding. Now I’m not sure if it’s just me or not, but I certainly like the idea of a President that makes his best attempt to take care of a situation before it becomes a serious problem.

Many public health officials are breathing in a sigh of relief. Although the problem hasn’t escalated to extremes it does allow the hospitals to better manage and treat patients with the Swine Flu. This will hopefully prevent overcrowding problems further into flu season.

However, we have to do our part too. Our responsibility is to try our best to prevent the spread of the Swine Flu virus. Wash your hands frequently, cough and sneeze into a tissue if you can. Get plenty of rest, and eat a healthy diet. Exercise. Do whatever you can to help the situation.

H1N1 Vaccine

Filed under: Flu,H1N1,Swine Flu,Swine flu treatment,Tamiflu,Uncategorized,vaccine — robertprice @ 3:30 pm


By now the initial scare of H1N1 is over, for the most part. Many are still worrying about the potential of another onslaught of the flu, but not to the same level as before. A vaccine has been made, but now people are skeptical of the vaccine. Should they get it or wait?

Many that are choosing to avoid the vaccine are skeptical of a few things. They are unsure of whether or not the vaccine really works and with so little time in development, what are the possible side effects. Also, do we really even need a vaccine, especially considering that swine flu kills less people than regular swine flu.

However, those that are receiving the vaccine are taking the “better safe than sorry” philosophy. Even though swine flu didn’t end up killing millions, many people are scared to shake hands in fears of getting the flu. And just because swine flu doesn’t have a death count like seasonal flu doesn’t mean that it is completely harmless. Swine flu is potentially fatal and those worried about becoming another added to the death toll are putting their faith into science and going with the vaccine.

Whether you decide to get the vaccine or not be prepared for the consequences of either action. Go look up the options and make up your own choice.

5 Ways to Protect Yourself from the Flu

Filed under: cold,Flu,H1N1,Hand Sanitizer,Swine Flu,The flu,Uncategorized — robertprice @ 5:10 pm

With the outbreak of the H1N1 virus (Swine Flu), many people have grown increasingly worried about catching the virus, which has been confirmed in 279 people and resulting in 1 death. The virus has caused an incredulous spike in hand sanitizer sales. Businesses are running out of many brands of hand sanitizers and many producers of the product are trying to keep up with the demand.

With so many people relying on hand sanitizers, one has to ask why? Well, for starters they are portable and very convenient to use fitting in most bags and purses. They help prevent the spread of germs and bacteria that could lead to infections or illness, such as the flu. Furthermore, most hand sanitizers include certain ingredients that help to prevent skin dryness and irritation cause by the alcohol in the product.

However, some people still are not clear or are unaware of the limitations of hand sanitizers. Whenever you go to buy hand sanitizer always look at the concentration of alcohol to make sure it is somewhere between 60-95 percent. Any lower than 60 and the product will not be effective enough to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria. Hand sanitizers are not soap and water, they are meant to be used with soap and water or only if soap and water cannot be found. Dirt and any other kinds of grime are not washed away by hand sanitizer and need to be wiped away.

There are, however, other preventative measures you can take to avoid catching or transferring the flu.

1. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

2. Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.

3. Try to avoid close contact with sick people.

4. If you get the flu, CDC recommends that you stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.

5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.

Though hand sanitizers are a good idea to have with you and use regularly, try not to rely on them and always wash your hands with soap and water whenever you can.
