Japan is starting to roll out its domestic vaccine for Swine Flu or Shingata Influenza (new form of Influenza) as it’s called in Japan.
The vaccine will be first given to medical staff starting Oct 17th 2009 and then on to the general public. There were a number of patients in the trial group that had some mild side effects.
I was able to get a vaccine shot in Australia whilst being stuck at the hospital for various other medical tests. After all the needles and tests, one more didn’t bother me. In Australia the vaccine is free of charge.
Are you thinking of getting vacinated for Swine Flu? Does it cost money where you are?
