    while it is tragic that anyone has died from Swine Flu, it has not in the most contorted version of the word, reached an epidemic proportion, that would require mandatory vaccines. And I include Military and Medical personnel in that

    YET!

    I do not support the gov. trying to force anything medical on people as we have saw in past that they have no qualms using us good citizens as their guinea pigs but this is a real issue and one that we need to worry about

    I do not support goverment mandated vaccines, ANY vaccines. People (and parents!) have the right to choose for themselves and their children, IMO.

    Personally I don't see why one wouldn't get it, if they didn't have any allergies to shots. It takes ten minutes and it can prevent a week of illness. Granted, I probably won't die from swine flu if I get it, but I'd rather not be ill either. "I'm a healthy person" is a similarly irrational reason not to get the vaccine IMO. If you get swine flu, chances are you're going to be sick for at least a few days no matter how strong your immune system is.
    When influenza vaccine has thimerosal in it. And all thimerosal is composed of 50% mercury. And ALL mercury diminishes the overall well being of all humans neurologically, and is independence/life threatening to all those lacking in neural health. Then yes. It is.

    No. It's not. Worrying about mercury from vaccines is stupid. There are plenty of more potent sources of mercury than vaccines, starting with any fish you might eat or any factories that you might live near.

    "Diminish overall well being"? And getting swine flu doesn't do that?

    I rather develop an immunity without the help of mercury thank you very much. All natural.

    Have fun getting an immunity from polio without a vaccine.

    Do you understand the point of developing an immunity in the first place? So that you don't get swine flu. And you would have to first get swine flu to develop a natural immunity to it, which means that this reasoning doesn't make any sense.
