Is there a number for people who got the flu shots but still got sick?
Wearing the small metal shield in my shirt pocket is equivalent to a vaccine against getting shot in that particular part of my chest.
I think that you overestimate the possibility of my getting swine flu, but we can't discuss that properly, I expect. I will accord no credence to the porposition that swine is or might be pandemic until I at least know of a single person who has or had it. Every case that has been reported to me has come through some sort of mass communication, the news and so on. I find that the fact that I don't know anyone who has told me that they know someone who knows someone who had swine flu is somewhat incongruent with the view of the situation that is being presented by the media.
What about what we were talking about earlier. The self-administered vaccinations what you guys think about that idea huh? Evo...lisa?
It's silly, it takes just as long to hand someone a syringe of the vaccine as it does to inject them. The health department is starting to track who gets the vaccine so it makes even less sense to give it to someone and never know if they actually injected it.What about what we were talking about earlier.

Yes, it's a problem with the number of workers in a public clinic.Here, people have waited in line for as much as 7 hours.

No one is being vaccinated against their will.No. Nobody should be vaccinated against their will. Besides, all US citizens do not have the same level of immunity to the new strain of flu. Some americans immune system will easily fight it off and some immune system will have a hard time fighting off the strain of flu.
About 50% of the employees in my building have had it (including me), and there were about 5 more out sick this week.
So how many people are there in your building and how many have died. We need to keep the statistical http://urban-science.blogspot.com/2009/10/h1n1-vaccination-hysteria-part-2-should.html" [Broken] going.
Unless it's diagnosed though, we can't even say it was the flu.About 50% of the employees in my building have had it (including me), and there were about 5 more out sick this week.
Full disclosure: no one went to the doctor to confirm it's H1N1. However, the CDC states on http://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/update.htm" [Broken]:
Almost all of the influenza viruses identified so far are 2009 H1N1 influenza A viruses. These viruses remain similar to the virus chosen for the 2009 H1N1 vaccine, and remain susceptible to the antiviral drugs oseltamivir and zanamivir with rare exception.
So I think it's safe to assume that a flu-like illness spreading around an office at this time (with all the classic H1N1 symtoms) is likely H1N1.

This year seems to be odd that no one has had a cold, it's all the flu.
But typically with a cold, there's lots of congestion. This (that everyone in my building is getting) is mostly characterized with fever, chills, aches, and incredible fatigue. Sore throat, too, and just a sniffle, maybe, but no congestion at all. No sneezing, either.
But true, it's not confirmed...yet I strongly suspect it's H1N1.
It works better if you just ignore the rest of what you wrote.
