is it safe to have any of the 2 swine flu shots??

]i have had the nomal flu with no problems so far. but i ma worried about the swine flu shot, as one of them is an immune system booster, having lupus i dont think it is a good idea, and the other one is the actual swine flue virus, with a compromised immune system could we be able to then fight it? are we just better off going without????????????[

Re: is it safe to have any of the 2 swine flu shots??

Hey Evam - I was just asking/proclaiming the same thing yesterday in a post about H1N1 and lupus... In Canada we also have 2 kinds of the shot one also with an immune booster for those at high risk and the general population and the other has no immune booster but, they are only giving that one to pregnant women.

I was watching a call in health show on my local news last night and someone called in asking if the immune booster H1N1 vaccine was ok for people with MS. The 'doctor' on the show said definitely! I thought MS was also an autoimmune disease and you are right, we don't want anything to boost our immune system.

Tis

I can't find any swine flu vaccine so the distinction is not relevent.

Yea, kind of a moot point at the moment, eh?

I'm still not in a "high risk" group. Some of my grandkids had the vaccine today....all the nasal kind so I'll stay away from them for awhile. I just checked my county health dept website and no clinics scheduled
