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.
