I have been so reluctant and on the fence about it at first, because I read alot of opinions which were mostly not in favor. Some were over exaggerating the potential problems with the vaccine. Some even said it has not been properly tested yet, blah blah...
But I guess the media was really scare mongering that overwelmed us to be more extra cautious and wait for the Vaccine to be available in the masses. It's so sad to hear the news about kids have died =( It freaked me out a bit that me and my dolly seldom go out, ride a train and mall hop=(
I admire Japan Media for being responsible enough to educate their people about this Influenza outbreak ( ah1n1 ) and atleast on how to prevent it. This actually made me watch the news every now and then lol. (but not anymore....)
The virus is unique, new in 2009, and our immune systems do not have antibodies that will act on it at all. That is why people under 50 are the ones who die from it, unlike the seasonal flu.
The bottomline, I just want to be the best mom I can for my daughter…and if anything happened to her…I would never forgive myself for which ever decision I might have made. It's better to prevent..
Im actually kinda relief now.. we can go out anytime we want. The only thing that prevents us is the freaking cold weather ...
please ALWAYS wash your hands first as soon as you get home..
Hand washing is the single most important step in preventing the spread of diseases.
