Swine flu hits Elftown[sequeena_rae] got it! If you have visited her house, you're encouraged to wash your hands, just in case. Earlier reports about cases on Elftown have turned out to be negative, so we'll not report about them. But now you can panic. There are no free hospital beds, spare doctors or vaccine anywhere in Elftown, so you're all gonna die unless you survive on your own.
IB seriously hopes that she'll recover fast and well, especially since she might actually become a reader and therefore a big part of our readers...
2009-07-24 [..:TwIStEd* *EsCApE:..]: Oh I can feel the love in this thread...and also the sickness! 0.o
2009-07-24 [Teufelsweib]: I was rather pointing out to squee and getting better, but feeling like a dick can be important at times as well x) xD
2009-07-25 [Mortified Penguin]: Not H1-N1! ...FFFFFFFUUUU
2009-07-25 [sequeena_rae]: *infects*
2009-11-26 [Dreathnor]: I had it earlier this year... survived... perhaps only by my own tenacity.
2009-11-26 [Zab]: Has been offered the vaccine thrice but refused..>_> I don't trust it.
2009-11-26 [Dreathnor]: I'm not a fan of unneeded vaccines. A yearly flu one, etc. etc.
2009-11-26 [sequeena_rae]: I don't think there's much point in me having it now. Not this year at least.
2009-11-26 [Zab]: No, since you got through it already you're more protected than from the vaccine. You probably won't need it for a few years.
2009-11-26 [Dreathnor]: Which then you'll probably get it again, vicious cycle really, lol.
2009-11-26 [sequeena_rae]: I still need to get the flu jab done though. Which I need to get done within the next week actually.
2009-11-26 [Teufelsweib]: but you already got the flu, no? because in that case you most likely won't get it again :) unless it has evolved really quick... the flu is a fast-evolving virus, so that's why you need a jab each year (if you want to get a vaccine. I never take flu-vaccines) but I can't imagine it being neccesary twice in a year :S
2009-11-26 [sequeena_rae]: Swine flu isn't the normal flu :P so I still need to get the flu jab because I'm in a high risk group. My mum had both jabs done a few weeks back.
2009-11-26 [Teufelsweib]: you're in a high risk group for the regular flu? why that?
2009-11-26 [Sunrose]: Wasn't it the asthma thing?
2009-11-26 [sequeena_rae]: Yeah :p
2009-11-26 [Lothuriel]: The problem I am having is that my kids' dr only has the nasal spray for the youngest two, for now. They are out of injections. My kids' can't have the nasal spray because it contains live virus. My husband has a supressed immune system and couldn't get within like the same area code (ok exagerration but, still) as the kids for soemthing like 3 weeks. :(
2009-11-26 [sequeena_rae]: Crap :(
2009-11-26 [Lothuriel]: Crap indeed ....
2009-11-26 [sequeena_rae]: Do you know if they'll get anymore vaccinations in?
2009-11-26 [Lothuriel]: Yes, they said they will have the injections within just a few days. There is no more shortage, they just ran out and shipments were delayed due to the holiday.
