    Bird Flu: Will You Get Vaccinated?

    The bird flu is coming to Europe. Thousands of birds have already been culled in Turkey and Romania. EU veterinary officers are to hold an emergency meeting to discuss new measures to prevent a spreading. A separate EU meeting of experts on bird flu is expected to issue advice on the potential risk for humans who come into contact with migratory birds. EU countries are being urged to stockpile anti-viral drugs after it was confirmed that avian influenza found in Turkey was the H5N1 type that is fatal to humans.

    Are you afraid? Will you get vaccinated?

    If we take racial precautions, we don't need vaccinations...

    Well, I'm not really too worried about it AT THE MOMENT. We are quite safe at the moment. It is only be a risk to us if the virus mutates. The only lethal type of bird flu at the moment is in Turkey apparently.

    What do you mean by "racial precautions"? They are chickens, not humans. I certainly didn't get what you meant. The only precaution to take is to burn the chicken before you eat it. It kills the virus. Digestion would kill it too from what I've heard on radio...

    No, I'm not affraid. It's not the first animal crisis we've in Europe. There were the cows, the porks, the chicken again. Anyways, I'm fed up with chicken. I prefer pork.

    No, I will not react to the scare tactics employed by the worlds politicians. I never got 'Mad Cow disease', I was not attacked by Anthrax and my world did not end due to the Y2K problem. I will not be scared in to a controllable state by the media or by governments.

    That made my evening.

    I voted no because I don't really believe in the idea of getting excessive vaccinations every time a person comes down with a viral infection. I think it's better to let immunity fight it off on its own.

    We'll, as you may be aware, it is more dangerous once it transform into a virus that spread like usual flu. I believe that bird flu cases on human beings have been experienced in Turkey or South east Asia. So if we don't let people in from those countries, then it wouldn't be transmitted.

    And I heavily doubt that Turkish Turkeys or Chicks will get it onto ours, either.

    All these vaccinations do no good as far as I'm concerned. Perhaps if people stopped cramming their bodies with unhealthy foods and over the counter drugs their immune systems would be less inept. If this virus does become a threat then there are others way to deal with it. But to me this sounds all too much like the SARS "threat" we had recently, not to mention every other supposed "threat" that passes through large cities that serves only to send the populace into further irrational fear. If it's not a big enough threat for this country to close its borders to non-European immigration (particularly from asiatic nations) then it's not a big enough threat for everyone and their dog to get a bloody flu shot or whatever it is they're shoving down peoples throats lately.

    Ho that's it. Well you're right. Unfortunately... we can't stop them yet. No borders anymore... you know the whole thing. Bloody EU...

    I had eggs for dinner the day before yesterday... :eek

    Do you guys not ever wonder if all this hype about these "flus" and "viruses" aren't some type of warfare accidentally leaked out by some group? Or if it is just hype itself? I know that there have been reported deaths and illnesses in Asia and it is now coming to a town near you, but I just don't think it is as rampant as the media wants us to think .

    I don't know...I guess when I am in the bed dying, I might think differently...:eek

    Until then, I don't vaccinate myself, and I haven't for years.
