http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/10/06/h1n1.vaccine.questions/index.html here's an interesting article. According to this the only poeple mandated to have this are us military. I guess that's similiar to those of the military that had to have the anthrax vaccine. Wanted to pass this along. I no longer need the vaccine I will probably give my kids the option of getting it. I doubt my wife will need it since she caught it from me early on. We took turns being sick, I was stuck in isolation in the bedroom for a week, her for 4 days.
