Oink Update

The call from my dad tonight was about H1N1. A friend of his had a 24 year old son who just died from H1N1 in Alberta. My step-mom's son has had severe reactions to vaccines in the past. I assured dad that I wasn't going to keel over any time soon (from either the vaccine, or the swine flu itself), and suggested his stepson talk to an allergist.

On the news tonight: long lines and people being turned away from flu clinics at capacity, and how there isn't as much vaccine as expected, because manufacturers had to stop making the regular shots in order to make the non-adjuvanted for pregnant women.
