    OK, question first. Once you have had one do you ever need another.

    You need an option for those of us that already got it.

    Now would I take our boys to get the vaccination??? Only if there were an outbreak in our area.

    In 1947, there was a smallpox outbreak in NYC were two people died from actually contracting the disease.

    Thousands were vaccinated within days... and three people died from the vaccination.

    However, hundreds would have died had they not received the vaccination.

    I voted NO simplly because I can not get one. If I was able to get one, I would.

    I work in a healthcare facility and there are already memos going around telling people to get ready for shots. Out of 8000 employees, they are only giving shots to about 150 "front line" medical employees for now. The rest of us will be offered the vaccine some time in the next year or so.

    That makes sense,if there is an outbreak of smallpox,you think those 150 or so will be able to keep that company happening????


    It's like the flew shots they have up here,most of the people that have had the shots have been sicker then any other year.
    They just pump you up with all these virus and destroy your immune system,no wonder a cold can be so deadly!!!
    I have refused the shots for the last 3 years and I have NOT been sick those winters...
    Staying in GOOD physical shape has a lot to do with dat...
    A good diet,a good heart...

    I have no choice as a member of the military, but I'm not too concerned, either.

    I was born in '62 so I've had it once already without problems. Theory states that if you had no trouble the first time, you won't on subsequent vaccinations.

    As for the kids, I think I'll side with butterfly on that one and would wait until an outbreak occured.

    isn't there a certain percentage or 1 out of so many vaccinations will contract the disease? that's what my mom told me. and my oldest brother never had the vaccination because the doctors said if he were to get the one with the disease, he would die because of other health problems.
