    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Saying the new H1N1 virus is "unstoppable", the World Health Organization gave drug makers a full go-ahead to manufacture vaccines against the pandemic influenza strain on Monday and said healthcare workers should be the first to get one.

    Every country will need to vaccinate citizens against the swine flu virus and must choose who else would get priority after nurses, doctors and technicians, said Dr. Marie-Paule Kieny, WHO director of the Initiative for Vaccine Research.

    If the stuff is made in the U.S.A., then nothing should be shipped out of this country until we know we have enough for our citizens. That's only fair.

    I agree, especially since the US is far and away the most infected country in the world with swine flu.

    I thought from all of the posts by NEPATRIOT... we were going to be forced to be vaccinated...

    OTOH this is getting scary.. will cause a personal dilemna, should I or shouldn't I.. will provide for a healthy discussion between wife and I.

    I thought this was going to be about opto-couplers.
    But this wouldn't be the forum for that stuff.
    Sorry about OT.

    I think this is extremely overblown. I won't go near a vacination shot. I'm not going to take something that'll give me parkinsons, or my future children autism, cuz the gubmit says I need to.

    I semi-feel the same way............ In a sorta sick way, since all the local cases (we have a ton here around me) are fairly mild, I wouldn't mind a mild case now. A couple days of misery, and the body naturally immunizes itself from it in the future. That way, if this goes through recombination and comes out like one nasty m-fer like the 1918 one, I'm good to go without getting injected with some gubmit test-tube concoction.

    This this will go through recombination (all flu bugs do) and there's no telling what'll come out on the other side. Something milder, about same, or something REAL BAD. Better to get immunization the natural way, with the relatively harmless variety going around.

    PR we actually agree on a lot of things, in case you haven't noticed, so long as they aren't BS/fake/lying mainstream media memes.

    I guess you're right. Just as an FYI, I don't put a lot of trust in msm. Yes, I read, listen to and watch it. But I always make up my own mind. I know greed and power corrupt everything. But even alternative sites are biased to their own agendas.
