Bacon fever has a much nicer ring to it than Swine Flu. Smile
Here's a quick poll.
  1. Have you had it?
  2. Have you been vaccinated against it?
    (If no, why not?)
  3. If you answered yes on 1. and 2. what were your symptoms?
    Did you get a fever? For how long?

I got the vaccine on tuesday and had a slight fever on wednesday, but wasn't affected by it much.

I came in prepared to gloat about the excellent bacon, egg, and cheese crouisant I just finished.

To answer the question.

No and no and I am in the high risk population.

The funny thing with the swine flu is that the death rate is not the problem. The problem is that this strain of the flu is prevelant throughout the world, much more so then the typical flu bug. The "standard" flu is still killing more people then bacon flu currently. The main casue for concern is if the bug mutatues to a more deadly form then the problems will be drastic. My predicition is that this will pass with out much issue.

Quote:
Nearly 5000 people worldwide are known to have died of swine flu so far. But on average 36,000 are said to die of flu each winter in the US alone. On the basis of such numbers, many have concluded - wrongly - that swine flu is less dangerous than normal flu.

These numbers should not be compared directly. The 36,000 figure comes from epidemiological studies. Because the timing of flu outbreaks varies from year to year, the normal number of deaths in any month can be compared with the number of deaths in the same month when there was a flu outbreak, says Lone Simonsen of George Washington University in Washington DC. Such studies reveal a bulge in deaths during and just after the flu season every year, mainly among the elderly. Many are clearly due to flu and other lung infections that can follow it, but more than half are not obviously connected, because flu often kills in indirect ways, by triggering heart attacks or strokes, for instance.

By contrast, the deaths attributed to swine flu are those directly caused by respiratory infection with the pandemic virus. Indirect deaths - the majority of the 36,000 figure for regular flu - are not being counted. The full death toll for 2009 H1N1 flu will not be known for a while, if ever.

1. No
2. No - I dont get any of the vaccines that come out to be honest. I've got a hardy immune system, know how to fight any crap that comes my way so unless its a vaccine for Ebola I really dont have an inclination to add another injection to my daily routine amongst other reasons.
3. Their flu like.

Ive been told it takes about 8-9 days for the vaccine to take affect so if you develop the swine flu before this period of time is up you were already exposed and got the vaccine too late.

bacon .. fever ... mmmm , can u eat it? vaccine against it? HAHAHAHAHA last time i checked i will be quite fine without it! why? do your own research. it is a hype produced like so many other old/new things coming from the pharma industry.

look for instance which way the money plays a role in this establishment and just how much it is!
now that is what srsly needs a vaccine here, if not only we had such a strong lobby here.

you really gotta have to search with a microscope to see the diffrence between them and the WHO.
too much money corrupts. thats what im saying.

it does not make things more efficient, but instead leaves everyone else dry.

a big big shame what some of this poeple do besides that what actually does cure.
