I just noticed that our community is administering shots at the fire station next Saturday. Is it still a 2-shot thing, that you have to get 2-shots over 4-6 weeks time to be inoculated against it?

I guess I should Google around about that.

Maybe we need to put this into perspective.
The latest news is that we should fore go the regular flu shot this year and take the H1N1.
The medical authorities are saying that if we take the regular flu shot then we probably will get the H1N1 virus.
The reality is that the vaccine for the H1N1 is about 4 times the price of the regular vaccine.
Getting the picture? Good old pharmaceutical companies are always there to help.....take our money.

I believe it comes down to common sense,,,
avoid crowded places where you are exposed to everyones' bad habits,,,
i.e.
commuter trains where people fart, belch, sneeze, cough, grope, etc....
the DMV where you'll be stuck for hours...
the movie theatre-see a crappy movie that won't be as crowded

farceur - Msg 11


if a man performs oral sex on a woman it coats his nasal region with a naturally occurring flu inhibitor, greatly reducing his susceptibility to the virus. The prophylactic treatment needs to be repeated every 24 hours to remain effective.

If this really works, it could save billions of dollars for health care on both sides of the border. It could save even some lives.
Should the men wash their faces with soap before the procedure? Is the face the only part to be treated?

This advice should be indexed by midnight by Google (and most probably picked by Reuters next morning)

As far back as I can remember, I can't recall coming across a woman's monkey having even the sniffles,,,
Must be some truth to it!

Terrible thought came to my mind.
This would work only for half of the population. OK, also for Ellen DeGeneres.

Mask? My job requires me to play with large sums of money all day. Do you have any idea how dirty, gross, and germ-infested money is? Hell..I might as well go around licking door handles!
Flu shot? I think I've already been exposed to every germ out there.

Good luck to you Tinkerbell...I remember when I went thru that and for a long time afterwards (my kids were in school and would bring me home everything, they might get a stuff nose I would be sick for two weeks).

I really wish sick people stayed home but everyone thinks that doesnt apply to them. The other day I had to send a cook home, he complained he had to work cause he wanted the money...tis sad people dont think of other people's health.

My daughter works in a urgent care centre. she said they see about 50 patients a day and its going to get worse when flu season hits in the winter. Her advice is to get the shot and buy LOTS and LOTS of hand sanitizer and use it . The health region here suggests that people who are showing symptoms wear a mask to prevent them from spreading the disease.

I have a friend that's a college professor in microbiology; he says the swine flu had been around forever. He also says it's mostly a danger to kids and very old people, for us it's not much more than a bad cold. I live with miserable freezing winters, I never get a flu shot, and I haven't had the flu in 20 years.

The media always love to scare the begeezus out of us. But I remember those kindergarten stories (think Chicken Little) so I don't fall for all the hysteria.

After all these years we're now being taught how to wash our hands, not cough and touch things that other's touch.
Yeah, that's funny, my mom drilled that into me over 5 decades ago.


I plan to combat the flu by ignoring the media announcments that "flu season is here!" and by eating right, staying hydrated, getting enuf sleep ... laffing a lot ... and thinking positive!
Sounds about like my plan.

I'm not too sure what I'd think of going on a 'first meet' and he shows up with a mask on.

But it's a moot point.. I've no first meets planned.

And the next obvious question is: what mask does the WHO (World Health Organization) wear to administer a vaccine worldwide that is one/third an immuno-booster taken from horses; one/third preservative and the last third either a dead or weakened virus that serves to compromise the immune system in the first place.

Look at the statistics. How many people died from it in Australia where the flu season has just passed?

Washing hands is always good but remember, the flu is not a bacteria, it's a virus. Who has the most to gain from administering this flu shot worldwide?

Using the same principle of "like cures like" that the vaccine was made from, why not boost the immune system using homeopathic medicine?

But back on a joking note...Redrelaxed....hilarious!!!

my daughter and grandson both came down with the swine flu, a couple days of pills and they are almost 100% again.I took care of them the whole time, wore a mask and hand sanatizer and all is good, its really not that big of a deal, her doctor said the cases have been very mild.Its just like any other flu, just be careful

Artz,

I would really love a mask to match some of my lingerie (just in case I get lucky ).

Try Again

I really do like the idea of the physical activity to ward off swine flu. But does it work for the other way around?

I can't see why not. I happen to like that idea, too.

I think wearing a mask is over doing it. But having lost a spouse who had the constitution of a Bull otherwise to flu I don't mess around about getting my shot every year.

Whenever I go out one of the first things I do when I come home is wash my hands throughly. And while I am out I don't touch things I don't need to. I also tend to avoid crowds and lines where you can't get away from people who are too rude to cover their cough.

That's like saying a blank sheet of paper is ruined by writing on it.

The immune system is not compromised by exposure to infectious agents.
It's activated.

At this moment, your intestines, lungs, eyes, skin, mouth are a seething playground for millions of bacteria, virus, fungal spores. Many of them with a fatal potential. But you're handling it just fine. Because your "compromised" immune system learned how to deal with them long ago. From exposure.

Sorry, think the media's got this way to hyped. Now, I'm kinda missing the terror color alerts! It's always something....................................
Won't be wearing a mask. Getting regular flu shot next week (our company brings in a nurse and everybody gets one) Will have to wait on the swine vaccine to arrive. Our state will probably be last, we are last at almost everything.

Just too hyped
