These headlines reek of hypocrisy:

Mandatory flu shots rile health workers
http://www.nationalpost.com/news/canada/story.html?id=2048334

Parents should not dismiss vaccine for H1N1 flu
http://www.nola.com/opinions/index.ssf/2009/09/editorial_parents_should_not_d.html

Ok so healthcare workers don't want mandatory shots because they don't want to take the H1N1 vaccine BUT the health care establishment thinks everyone else should take it and not dismiss the importance of it.

Right - isn't that called talking out of both ends?

I know you have read it now but essentially an unpublished Canadian study seems to indicate that if you have the REGULAR flu shot your risk of getting H1N1 increase two-fold. The study has not been peer-reviewed yet but the provinces in Canada are modifying their schedules nonetheless.

It does a body good to hear the truth finally beginning to come out. Even if it is tiny little bits and pieces at a time!

Dr. Oz said his kids will not be receiving the vax, but goes on and on about protecting the vulnerable.

My husband loves Dr. Oz so I've seen many times where he was slightly hypocritical. He has his own show now but I haven't seen much of it. My husband records it so I'm sure I will get the chance...
