Indiana and Tennessee doctors, nurses, and healthcare workers received the very first doses of the H1N1 virus vaccine (the Swine Flu Vaccine [dun-dun-duuuun...]) Monday as the Federal government formally kicked off its largest indoctrination- er, inoculation effort against the dreaded global killer (of 3486). This effort is the largest in US history.
These vaccinations mark the beginning of a government plan to inoculate at least half- if not all- of the American population against swine flu (which, if we are to buy the hype, is going to doom us all). The federal government has already spent two billion dollars to purchase 250 million dosed of the flu vaccine, and has promised to buy more should there be the demand (or all Hell breaks loose).
But the latest public opinions polls show that they might have a hard time pulling that off. 40% of Americans are thinking about getting the vaccine (with only 50% of those asked being willing to give the vaccine to their children). The majority of Americans feel that the Swine Flu is little more than a nasty case of the flu with a great publicist.
The priority for these first batches of the H1N1 vaccine are infants under six months, healthcare workers, knocked up broads, adults with health problems like obesity, diabetes, and asthma, and anyone between the ages of 6-24.
Personally I am totally against this somewhat mandatory vaccination movement (being sold to the public by an eager media that loves reporting about the apocalypse). We as a culture tend to rely a little too much on antibiotics and vaccines, and many believe that this is weakening us as a species. Our bodies are not flexing their white blood cells, which must somewhat weaken our immune system. Not to mention that by our constant usage of antibiotics allows our bodies to grow tolerant to these treatments thus making it more difficult to treat serious infections if and when we need to.
So suck it up people. It's just the fucking flu. You get the sniffles for a few days, maybe feel like hot shit on a shingle... but you will live. And not only will you live, but you and any offspring you manage to spring forth from your fertile loins will be stronger for it. This is how we, as humans, earned the right to flourish on this planet... because of our ability to overcome the various germs, viruses, and bacteria that lives on this planet. Survival of the fittest fuckers...
