Over the past few weeks, I've talked to a bunch of fellow CFers about..you guessed it..SWINE FLU!
So many people seem hesitant to receive the H1N1 vaccine. I did some research, read this article, and talked to my CF team (they are recommending all of their patients get both). Of course, I trust my CF doc and after reading more about Swine Flu, it seems a lot more likely to actually get the flu than to have side affects from the vaccine - it is made the same as the seasonal vaccine, just a different strain. It is especially important for those of us with respiratory illnesses to take proactive steps when we can. That being said, I just want to let you all know, that I got both the seasonal AND H1N1 shots today. Bring on flu season!
