    I haven't had a letter from my GP yet.... I am asthmatic too. I've already had what the doctors thought was swine flu but you can get more than one variant of it. Not sure whether to phone the doctors or not...

    Spoke to a friend last night who's a statistician for the HPA. According to their research, about half the population has had swine flu, quite a few didn't know they had it.

    Anyway, they're predicting a sharp decline in infected numbers by mid-Jan.

    I've been offered it because I'm apparently immune suppressed from drugs I took 3 years ago. Bit silly really but I'm not going to argue.

    Just phoned the surgery. Apparently they sent me an invite on the 12th november (which I've not received). They are only doing jabs on two days per week - monday and Saturday and they don't have any more planned as of yet. Brilliant.

    If i die, it's on their heads.

    Got my invite today. I expected it as i'm on medication that suppresses my immune system. Might as well go have it i suppose.

    I got the invite for the jab a couple of days ago. Has this thing been around long enough for the vaccine to be tested properly? I dont want swine flu but don't fancy being a guinea pig either.

    If you have been off work with Swine flue, are you work insisting you take any particular length of time off?

    Looks like schools and other government places of work are setting down a mandatory 2 weeks.

    It's 7-11 days after initial symptoms, I believe.

    Most workplaces I know insist you stay home.

    Blimey. I had five days off (including my weekend) then on the sixth day went in to get my laptop so I could work from home - not the greatest idea since I felt pretty rough on the 7th. Dunno if that was swine flu or not, but it's the worst flu I've had for about fifteen years as far as I can remember.

    I've had the swine flu, it was awful, the tamiflu, even worse. I had a 45 minute conversation with my husband as he stood next to my bed..... problem was he was in Huddersfield and I was in Leeds! it's some weird weird shit!

    I was wondering this. By "didn't know they had it" do you think they had really nasty colds without making the connection? Or are some people having just a different, milder set of symptoms? Because I'm wondering if actually I've had it already.

    Also, apparently there was a strain of H1N1 that went around in 1969 and many people aged 40 and above are immune to swine flu. This is what I was told in Belgium. Haven't heard anything about that anywhere else though! Anyone else heard that?

    Yes, that's true. And I believe that's the reason that swine flu kills much less people than standard flu. The elderly are in the most at risk category, but many of them are already immune.

    He actually had a term for it but I can't recall what it was. They essentially have such mild symptoms that some don't register that they're "ill" at all.

    He said that if you had conventional flu recently, it can also help to a degree.

    Hope you're not including everyone over 40 in the category of "elderly"... :D

    Touch wood, reckon we might have dodged it this way. But that's probably tempting fate. :(

    It's OK. Panic over. Its not as bad as it could have been.

    "But even the comparatively low death rate of 0.026% may itself be a huge overestimate. That's because huge numbers of those infected have probably had swine flu without knowing it."

    Strange new development on this front.

    These posters have been cropping up around where I live:

    Exhibit A
    Exhibit B

    They reference this Website . Thoughts?

    Is that whole, the vaccine isn't a vaccine, but an implant to allow the Government/Aliens/Stealth Jews to control the masses thing again?

    I don't know. Those two are on my walk to work, I've no idea if they are elsewhere or not. The link points to them being dangerous for medical reasons, rather than proper daft conspiracy reasons. I think. I haven't read it all.

    The website mentions these guys Who I think would get on quite well with niteninja. Maybe.

    Well this is complete bollocks as it's not possible to detain someone under the mental health act for the reasons given, so that makes it look a bit shonky in my humble opinion.

    The use of the provisions of the mental health act to coerce people into taking a jab which has not been tested or allowing their children to take the jab and of pyscho active drugs to influence and control people is reminiscent of Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union.

    Goddamn it. PEOPLE NEED TO READ HISTORY BOOKS.

    They also need to read up on political theory.

    There were no Nazi's in Germany or there was no Soviet Union?

    Fucking mentalists with money to burn and people's lives to try and fuck up. That's my diagnosis.

    No, everything is compared to Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union these days, when infact there is nothing in the western world that is comparable to them in any sort of real sense.

    It just seems if something can be construed in a quite frankly obtuse way of state supervision it = Communisim! Or Nazism!

    Bollocks.

    Given the nature of the area I live in, I initially thought it was some weird thing from a confused Muslim about the vaccine containing pig, but the website seems more Icke.

    For a start comparing Nazis and communists is like comparing a rotten egg to a rotten apple.

    Sure, they are both rotten, but thats where the similarities end.
