Flu and pneumonia vaccines
I had a pneumonia vacine yesterday..and i woke up with my arm really sore, its hurts bad to move it. Could be i just slept wrong on it...but its the same area I had the injection.  Anyone ever experienced side affects from this vaccine?

I will call later and ask also.

ALSO, how do you feel about the swine flu vaccine?

thanks, meg

Last year was the first year I had a flu shot.  I experienced the same thing.  It lasted several days.  My mom and dad both said they had experienced the same thing but not every time...go figure.

Hey Meg,

Any relief yet?

As far as the H1N1 vaccine - I'm still up in the air about it.  Glad they will roll it out - but wishing it were longer in the making. Unfortunately, time was not w/them.

Giving this a bump because vaccines are important - especially for those of us w/chronic disease.

Meg,

I'm with Opie re the swine flu vaccine!  If I remember correctly, the reason it is not yet available is that it is still undergoing trials.

Remember back in the late 1970s or early 80s when we had our first swine flu scare and the swine flu vaccine was being pushed hard by the CDC for an epidemic that never materialized?  Well, my father-in-law was in the last group getting that vaccine - before they took that dangerous vaccine off the market.  That vaccine killed him.  He was gone within a month of having received the swine flu vaccine.  I later met at least a half dozen people who had been disabled in different ways from that vaccine - but I never ever met anyone who had actually gotten the swine flu!!  Go figure!!
