Swine Flu.

At my school a few months ago we had to get our parents to fill out a form allowing us to get the H1N1 vaccine. So I get mine filled out, even though I hate shots/nasal spray, and so does half of my friends. Well we are just now getting this vaccine, it's been months. Does anyone else see the problem there? It's barely even going around my school anymore. And I can understand how it was such a big deal, so companies and hospitals were a little low on the vaccine. That's completely understandable. I just think it's weird that they would give us the vaccine like 3 months after we filled out the form to get it. They are giving two types here at my school, the shot and the nasal spray. You can only get the shot if you have asthma or heart problems. So that leaves me and half of my friends with the nasal spray. My best friend told me that when you go to get it the lady will tell you it will feel like you're I the only one who see's something majorly wrong with that picture? That just makes me even more worried about it, and the fact that they are shooting the live virus into you so you can become immune to it. I'm trying not to get the swine flu, so why in the world are they shooting it up my nose? Especially while it's still live and working. When Taylor got the spray earlier this morning she said it wasn't that bad, that it just felt like nose spray, which I thought was good, because nose spray isn't that bad, but she also told me that it smells awful. Some people can taste it afterwards. I'm like all of this just so I MIGHT not get sick? To me it's not worth it. People at other high schools have had major side effects of the spray, including: passing out, vommiting, etc. Nope, no way, I don't want to have to deal with all of that. It's stupid. Then again I don't like shots either, so we'll see how this plays out. I mean we're teenagers for crying out loud, it's like we're going through all of this stuff and we don't even know if we'll end up catching it later on.
