No Fear in the Swine Flu?
Supposedly, a recent Canadian poll uncovers somewhat disturbing numbers. Apparently there hasn't been a huge flow of people running to get in line for the much anticipated swine flu vaccine. About 45% of Canadians polled said they are not planning on getting flu shot. When asked many of the polled participants simply stated that the fear is stricken into people every year, so why all of a sudden worry more now.
Unfortunately this is the sentiment that is held by millions of people all around the world. However, health officials want to warn people that this is not the right attitude to take. Because this strain of the virus is brand news, it is even more virulent and has the potential to be even more dangerous.
