Swine flu vaccination

I said that I was only going to discuss swine flu once...... well it appears that I might have lied. I strongly suggest that you read my original post before reading this on.

One of the key messages of the book Death by Prescription is that you should avoid at all costs a medication that has not been around for a few years. This is because it takes a while for all the drug interactions, side effects and other negative things to be known. And nearly most of the time there is a older drug that works just as well.

So bearing this in mind, before you go and get a swine flu vaccination, you should at least make an informed decision, weighing up the pros and cons or each decision. As part of this process I would suggest you read this doctors post.

Update: It appears that it is not only American doctors who are concerned about this, our very own and very astute Macdoctor has some things to say on this issue.
