The article below shows the confidence the American people have in the H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine. Why is this? Maybe it is because we do not have the confidence in the vaccine since it has been rushed to the market possibly without all the necessary testing and safe guards.

Warnings that the swine flu vaccine will be most effective if given to children doesn’t seem to be swaying the majority of American parents. In a survey by Consumer Reports, sixty-five percent of parents said they won’t be getting the swine flu shot for their kids.
The number opting in on the vax for their kids (thirty-five percent) is just barely above the number of Americans who say they’ll get the shot for themselves (thirty-four percent).
To be fair, the majority of parents said they’re undecided, with just fourteen percent saying outright that they will not be getting their kids the shot. For those still on the fence, a little food for thought:
While seasonal flu is generally worst for the elderly, H1N1 has been found to be showing up more in the younger population as its run through America. By contrast, fewer young people seem to be dying from the disease than the numbers of elderly generally claimed by the seasonal flu.
For parents opting out because they don’t want to pay – check with your insurance or local health department, some states have mandated health insurance carriers cover the shot for kids.
