Aug. 25, 2009 -- Less than half of health care workers surveyed in Hong Kong intend to get vaccinated against swine flu, citing uncertainty about its effectiveness and possible side effects, a new study indicates.
And another new study shows that health care workers and some people in the general public may refuse to get immunized or vaccinate their kids, fearing that risks of a novel vaccine could outweigh benefits.
Finally, people are starting to smarten up about flu vaccines. God made our immune systems perfectly....why do we insist on messing with God's perfection?
No, I will not be getting the swine flu vaccine or any other vaccine, thank you very much.
