Health care workers protest in New York:

National survey says 60% of parents don't want their kids to take swine flu shot:

British Medical Journal cites surveys that say many health care workers won't take swine flu shot:

Aside from the potential danger of taking these shots, this is a civil rights issue!
Everyone should have the freedom to decide what goes into their bodies--the government has no right to take away that personal freedom.

In my article on the Grant County H1N1 Planning meeting (viewtopic.php?f=106&t=4584) I ask about the health care workers here in GC who wanted vaccine and according to a survey about 63% said they were interested before it was available. This was a local survey, not sure who did it.

Apparently New Mexico doesn't have a mandatory vaccine law. If you have kids in school the school system makes parents think that their is a mandatory law for the usual children vaccines but just ask for the "Conscientious Objector" form and fill it out.

School age children don't have access to the H1N1 vaccine at this time.

Those who live in states that force vaccine on certain groups must be resisted.
