We here at Baad Medicine advocate the H1N1 vaccine for everyone that has no major contraindications. (ie. an egg allergy, you are less than 20 weeks pregnant, you have a high fever, you have recently had Guillain Barre) I believe that shots are unpleasant but preferable to getting the actual illness. For most of us, the swine flu makes us feel kinda bad and you get over it in about 10 days. For those among us who are very young, very old, have other diseases such as heart or lung conditions, it can be very serious indeed. And I'll be honest, our readership is not so big that we can afford to lose any of you. And it would break my heart to hear about one of you becoming very ill because of this mostly preventable virus.
So take of yourselves and your loved ones. I got the shot yesterday. It was no fun and my arm hurt but I know that it will protect me and my family.
(P.S. I haven't been posting knitting content mostly because I am working on something that T does not know about. It is not for her or anyone in her family. It's just awfully fun keeping a secret from her sometimes. T. likes to be in the know. Right, Andi?)
