H1N1 Vaccine Jab

TERMINATOR 2 SYRINGEAnyone get the H1N1 vaccine yet?

I normally don’t get vaccines, but I said what the hell. Getting the H1N1 vaccine is all the rage these days, and I’m always one to jump on the latest trend.

So I got jabbed yesterday. Nothing to it. From the time I got in line to the time I got the injection, it was probably less than 15 minutes.

The side effects so far: It feels like someone punched me in the shoulder. If anything else happens, I’ll report it here (in the comments).

Anyone else get jabbed?

You Cannot Get the Flu From Eating Meat

From the World Health Organization: Is it safe to eat pork and pork products?

Yes. influenza A(H1N1) has not been shown to be transmissible to people through eating properly handled and prepared pork (pig meat) or other products derived from pigs. The influenza A(H1N1) virus is killed by cooking temperatures of 160°F/70°C, corresponding to the general guidance for the preparation of pork and other meat.

So stop the silly banning of pig exports and pork-eating paranoia.
