H1N1 flu Vaccination

I finally got my H1N1 flu vaccination jab yesterday from Klinik Kok and Wendy in Bukit Tinggi, Klang. To my opinion, I think it’s really important to make an effort to get this sort of flu vaccination since it’s available in the market now. If I am not mistaken, you can get it for free in government hospitals, or even not, you probably pay just a minimum amount. In fact, I have to admit, I got mine pretty late. I should have went for this shot much earlier considering the fact that I have a baby now. Just to share, do you know that as of 5 May 2010 in Malaysia itself, it has been reported that a total of 13889 people have been infected with H1N1? Yup, get this facts from our Ministry of Health website; http://h1n1.moh.gov.my.

It’s scary, come to think of it. When you are out there perhaps in shopping malls or at work you wouldn’t know who are infected with H1N1, because unlike a person who’s infected with chicken pox for instance, you can see the signs! That’s why if you ask me, I think it’s really important for each one of us to make an effort to get this flu vaccination. At least you’ll have a peace of mind lah if you get stuck in a crowded lift or happened to walk past someone who sneeze on your face! Oh well, as the saying goes; prevention is better than cure!

For more information, do go to this website and read the H1N1 Vaccine Frequently Asked Questions. I find it pretty informative.

Also, since I got my H1N1 flu vaccination shot from Sanofi Aventis’s product, read more on the vaccination here.

Since I found out from this article that babies from age 6 months and above can take this shot, I will consult my doctor again and if all is OK, oh yes.. little Rosemary is going to get her jab too!

Remember to consult your doctor :)
