Here I am getting the H1N1 vaccine. With a four-month-old infant I am in the high-risk group that Health Canada recommends should receive an earlier dose as flu season kicks in. After all of the concern about debilitating side effects or even getting the virus from the vaccine (which would be impossible), I can report that I only experienced a brief feeling of light headedness and a mild headache.
However, the latter may have been produced by the headline I saw that business executives on Wall Street got access to the limited supply of the vaccine ahead of many health clinics.
According to the Wall Street Journal:
Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Morgan Stanley and Citigroup Inc. are among several large New York City employers that got doses of the H1N1 vaccine, which remains in short supply as the new flu virus continues to spread and manufacturers struggle to produce ample stocks of vaccine quickly.
But wait, according to FOXNews, the H1N1 vaccine is worse than swine flu itself? What’s going on here?
Why would Wall Street executives be getting the vaccine early when it’s clearly going to kill them? Then it hit me, the swine flu vaccine must be Obama’s secret plan to further poison the economy and I fell for it. After his first attempt to destroy capitalism actually ended up helping those very firms that caused the financial crisis in the first place, he’s now orchestrated a conspiracy with the Centers for Disease Control and the communists in ACORN to poison the bankers themselves.
Truth is, it’s not a bad idea.
(As a side note: the “infectious disease expert” is actually Dr. Kent Holtorf, a natural bioidentical hormone replacement specialist who focuses on “anti-aging.” He has no expertise with vaccines in any way. But he has written for the Huffington Post.)
