    I think this is a good idea; but I also want to take in consideration that If some people don’t take the Vaccination due to religion; they shouldn’t be pressured on taken the vaccine. but over all this can help the u.s prevent the swine flu spreading.

    In my opinion I think that nobody has the right to controls people’s life and that it should be peoples choice to get the vaccine or not. In my personal point of view even thought I think that the swine flue is deathly i don’t believe in getting the vaccine since i know that our body could immune to this flue just like it is to the other ones.

    I don’t think it’s a great idea, but this idea can help the swine flu cause. People usually don’t have time to go to a doctor and get a check up. They could have the virus and be spreading it out without even know who they could possibly be harming. This vaccination invades civil liberties but it can also help maintain our community healthy.

    I think you cant force vaccinations on people. The fact that they don’t get vaccinated may be the cause of the growth of the disease but its up to the person to decide wether they want to get vaccinated or not. i also think everyone has a different reaction to everything but i still think it is improper to force someone to do something when it comes down to THEIR body .

    I think the swine flu is spreading because those infected don’t get treatment, and therefore are getting other people sick. Everyone has a right to choose what to do with their body, but in times like this everyone should take into consideration not only their life and health but those of others as well. Even if youre not sick its always better to be safe, and to my experience a flu shot never got me sick or comprimised my health.

    The impulsive demand for the Flu Vaccination for all N.Y. Health Workers is a direct undermining of the bureaucratic democracy we are supposed to have. Without a great consensus of this decision to be made, it is actually hurting many of the working class people of NY-“the regulation affected 500,000 health care workers and volunteers statewide.”

    I strongly desagree in making people get vaccinations, because we have freedom to choose what we want its our decision, our body and it can only be decided by us not someone that just thinks about their own self. For example in the case of human papilloma virus many girls are been victims of this vaccine many have die or lost movement of their whole body, there’s a law in whitch girls who come from europe or any other country have to get the vaccine, i think this is horrible because they have seen the effects and they still destroying this young ladies life.

    My opinion to the vaccine in other to protect our selfs from the most known disese in the whole world called h1n1 a.k.a the swine flue is killin alot of people because they are not gettin protection from it so i think is a very good idea to protect our selfs and our loves ones before any tradegy ouccurs. Even thoght scientist are just staring to create this vaccine is better to have something protecting you than nothing at all .. so i do agree 🙂

    In my opinion I think that the swine flu shot should be mandatory because that way the people aren’t exposed to the risk of catching it and suffering major damage. Although it is true that it goes against the people’s civil liberties, by getting the swine flu shot, not only are you sustaining yourself safe and healthy but you are also keeping everybody else in the community safe. If the swine flu shot wasn’t mandatory then just imagine how many people would end up getting sick everyday.

    i dont think is a good idea to force people to have to put vaccine. People should have the right to decide either they want to put a vaccine or not in there body. I mean it good that our health is important but it should be our choose , not theres.

    In my opinion it is a good idea for this vaccine to be mandatory because this way people can avoid getting sick with the swine flue. I also agree that, nobody has the right to control our bodies but in this case I think that the vaccine can be beneficial for us. If a person doesn’t want to get vaccinated its okay but they should do it for other people because if you get the swine flue, you can spread it and get other people sick. If they get the vaccinated they can prevent the spread of the H1N1 and also prevent deaths. That’s why it’s very important to get vaccinated against the swine flue.

    I don’t think is a good idea that people should be forced to take the Swine Flu shot. The Swine Flu has many side effects, just like other vaccines, either way the person will get sick and most likely spread it. We should have the option of getting the shots we need. =]

    I don’t know why the vaccines are being criticized negatively. I think that it is a good thing, because the government has their best interest in mind. Why would someone want to even refuse the free vaccincation? Getting the vaccination will prevent people from getting sick and SAVE LIVES. The flu can be deadly.

    I believe that people should be able to decide what they want to have put in their body. Although this vaccine can help stop the spread of H1N1 and help prevent it, people should have their right to not receive that vaccination if they don’t want to. I believe people should have a choice to either receive the vaccination or decide not to, without being penalized.

    For me this is a good idea, because we are talking about the health of other individuals not only yours. so if you refuse to take the shot for X or Y reason and you get the swine flu, and you get someone else sick. you are basically putting the life of another person in dangerous and is not fair. so i think is important to get vaccinated for the good of everyone,just be responsible and don’t put your and the life of others in dangerous, there is nothing like being healthy.

    I believe this is a magnificent initiative, because if someone is not sick is best to be vaccinated to put a stop to it and prevent from getting it your self especially since flu season is coming up and since most of the time around people but i think in my opinion is that i would be really scared its a new vaccine and I would want to be like a little test guinea pig, I would rather wait and see the affects this vaccination would do.. I think there are many who are scared to try.

    To me this sounds like a good idea. If everybody takes the shot nobody gets sick . But what if someone doesn’t want to take the flu shot doesn’t get me wrong it’s a great but I really don’t think that it should be something mandatory from my point a view.

    I think this idea is good if they have the swine flu and they get te shot it will help them. If they dont then it could prevent it which is great. A lot of people dont want that shot but it is understanding that they dont want to take the shot. I think if they are sick then they should go to the doctor.

    I think this is a great idea because if they know there sick already i suggest them to go get the vaccine for the cure and prevent any other action cause by this flue. State health officials said that the regulation affected 500,000 health care workers and volunteers statewide.

    I think this is a great idea. If they are infected with the swine flu & they don’t know it or they do & infect other people that’s basically attempted murder. Swine flu is deadly (as we all already know). Nobody wants to get sick, so get the shot & get everything over with. It might be against your civil liberties or what not but it’s better to just get the shot then get sick or even risk your own death.
