Just the Facts of the H1N1 Vaccine...Not the Hype

Below is part of a new blog post from Barbara Loe Fisher, Co-founder and President of the Vaccine Information Center. I know my postings on the Swine Flu Vaccine are becoming redundant, but the hype in our country is spreading at an alarming rate and the flu is clearly not understood.

Here is just an excerpt:

Just the Facts, Not the Hype

So, here are the facts:

* The new swine influenza is mild for most people even though a small number have developed complications and died.

* The swine flu vaccine has been tested for only a few weeks on a few thousand healthy children and adults, including very few pregnant women. We don't know how safe it really is for pregnant women or children and adults with chronic illness even though they are being specially targeted for vaccination by government health officials.

* There is very little information about how safe it is to give swine flu vaccine with other vaccines, including seasonal influenza vaccine.

* There is very little information about whether the swine flu shot will keep you from getting swine flu.
