H1N1 vaccine may be “deadly.” Glenn Beck (KTTH m-f, 6-9a) told his viewers last week. “You don’t know if this is gonna cause neurological damage like it did in the 1970s.”
Rush Limbaugh claimed that H1N1 warnings are “a bunch of typical government panic and hype” and asserting that "[y]ou'll be healthier" if you don't believe what the government says. "Who put the notion that you gotta have this shot, or this nasal spray -- whatever the hell the vaccine is -- whoever the hell put in your head the notion that you gotta do it? Government did.

Maybe talk to somebody with a little scientific background and a medical degree about what actually is your risk and your opportunity to be safe and secure
