I'm getting yelled at by my mom to get the Swine Flu shot
    #11297523 - 10/22/09 05:19 AM (8 years, 6 months ago)

I'm going no.

I'm a healthy adult that has no reason to get a flu shot in the first place.

The media is so over blowing this to the extent that it's caused people like my mom to think it's the end of the world.

I keep telling her the facts.  The Swine Flu has only killed about 2,000 people so far.  That sounds 9/11 bad and all.  But that's world wide.  The real flu kills over 100,000 people every year in the world.  You never hear about that because it's common place.  We're just use to it.

It could be worse.  There could be an epidemic of the grizzly shits going around.

media fear mongering is a great way to churn up demand

pharmaceuticals are making a killing with this.

The World Health Organization is also pretty happy about it.

not a bad way to get nationalized health care support either.

I'm not so much paranoid as I'm not the type of individual who needs the shot.  Leave it to the young and elderly.  The only times I ever got sick was smoking weed and getting colds.  I'm done with that now.

It's very true, on average, the CDC reports:

200,000 cases of hospitalized seasonal flu a year.
36,000 deaths.

This year so far for H1N1 Internationally:
170,000 some odd thousand hospitalized.
1700 some odd deaths. as of august 17th I believe.

I want a I survived swine '09 shirt.

Yup I dont think its about people dying.

I saw just as you guys did how they made the predicted 40 some thousand deaths from a flu seem like a big deal, I figured that thats probably not much more than we lose from the other flus.

What im saying is the lost productivity is what I believe the real concern is.

We are in a delicate economical state right now.

Its also a bit early for the flu season, and if you go to any really populated areas like schools for example, youll see that alot of people are sick.

In my area most people that have flu like symptoms have swine.
Something like 90% of flu cases are swine flu.

So... This isnt really about being a life or death issue as it may seem if you watch TV. Its about not having a large percentage of your work force out for weeks at a time.

Happens every year, you just don't notice. It gets ignored, like somebody said upthread.
