I had my annual flu vaccination today, my arm is a bit sore and achey but I know by experience that this will pass in a couple of days. A couple of years ago I missed the flu shot (cause who needs it anyway) and I was sicker than I think I have ever been in my life. I was literaly curled up on a chair trying not to move because my entire upper body hurt so badly, lets not even discuss the state of my head.

I am lucky I work at a State University and I have a thankfully low grade but documented asthma that puts me right at the top of the list of people getting the H1N1 vaccine here at Trinity College.

The H1N1 vaccine is manufactured exactly like the regular flu vaccine. It does contain mercury, but it contains less than an infant absorbs from his mothers breast milk in I think a week (nurses please correct me if I err here). In addition this kind of mercury leaves your body in about the same time 1 week.

Ultimately its a personal choice but I think that Statistics are on my side in this particular decision, I will be vaccinated and so will my daughter and my mother.

Here's my most sincere wish that you all stay healthy during this flu season, vaccine or no vaccine.
