Just some news I think other Canadians might be interested in, if you haven't read already.<br><br><b>Manufacturer Warns About 172,000 Doses Of Swine Flu Vaccine In Canada</b><br><br>
"Pharmaceuticals company GlaxoSmithKline PLC said Tuesday it has advised medical staff in Canada to not use one batch of swine flu vaccines in case they trigger life-threatening allergies.<br><br>
White said the batch at issue, which has been distributed across Canada, contains 172,000 doses of the vaccine. She declined to say how many doses had been administered before the advice to stop using them was given.<br><br>
White said U.K.-based GlaxoSmithKline wrote to Canadian health care professionals advising them to stop using the batch on Nov. 18. She says a total of 7.5 million doses of the vaccine have been distributed in Canada."<br><br><a href="http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=120741275" target="_blank">http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...ryId=120741275</a><br><br>

Wow, that's horrible! My kids were already vaccinated, all except for the baby. I really resented having to get them vaccinated against this!! I'm afraid not to do it and at the same time I'm afraid of the vaccine. Zero trust anyone?

I'm sorry you felt like you had to get the vaccine. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
I think it's important to point out that no one *has* to get *any* vaccines in Canada. You do have a choice, and your choice can be 'no thanks'. There's some really great information in the Vaccines forum of Mothering if you wanted to learn more. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

My SIL's brother's child reacted to the vaccine and she got some pretty serious lesions all over her body. Haven't heard a recent update, but my SIL was pretty disappointed as they discussed the vaccine and at the time she had said she wouldn't be getting it.
