Are you getting the swine flu vaccination?

Learn More About the H1N1 Vaccine and the Availability of the H1N1 Vaccine.

Each week CDC analyzes information about influenza disease activity in the United States and publishes findings. During the week of September 20-26, 2009, a review of the key indicators found that influenza activity remained elevated in the United States. According to ABC news, the swine flu vaccines were due to arrive in the United States the first week of October and should begin to be available shortly thereafter.

Swine flu, officially known as H1N1, has been on everyone’s mind since its first outbreak in March of 2009. Pharmaceutical companies raced to develop a vaccination before prime flu season because of international fears that it could become a pandemic. As of September 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved four vaccines against H1N1.

There will likely NOT be enough H1N1 vaccine doses available for everyone who desires it. The Centers for Disease Control CDC has urged hospitals and other H1N1 vaccine providers to prioritize who gets the vaccine. Highest priority will be given to those who have daily contact with patients: doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers. Next are people considered high risk, such as those with chronic disease (like cancer or Hepatitis C), people who take care of children, or pregnant women. Obesity and diabetes are the health conditions that are most often linked to swine flu deaths so far.

Should you get the H1N1 vaccine?

The one advantage of getting the H1N1 vaccine is that you reduce your chances of catching the swine flu (but the risk is not eliminated.)

This vaccination was prepared in a rush. It is what they call “fast-tracked” and this means we are less sure of its effectiveness and side effects. If fact, the drug companies do not accept liability for any harm that may come from being vaccinated. There have been other vaccines that were fast tracked and resulted in serious side effects. However the government does assure us, "The H1N1 vaccines…undergo the same rigorous FDA manufacturing oversight, product quality testing and lot release procedures that apply to seasonal influenza vaccines."

In the end, each person must decide for themselves if they want to get vaccinated against the swine flu and then see if they there is enough vaccine for them!

Tips for Avoiding the Swine Flu

Young Living Founder, Gary Young, urges us not to be concerned or afraid of the swine flu, but to "think smart”. There are several Young Living products that can be used to boost immunity and help kill germs.

Young Living's INNER DEFENSE SOFT GEL CAPS reinforce systemic defenses, create unfriendly terrain for yeast/fungus, promote healthy respiratory function, and contain potent essential oils like oregano, thyme, and Thieves® which are rich in thymol, carvacrol, and eugenol for immune support.
