Saw a post from a friend with a video on how the H1N1 shot will be combined with the regular flu shot.  So, if you want one yu have to have the other.  The video was a little sensationalized and when anyone requests to make something viral…I cringe.  Lol, viral that’s funny cause….never mind.  Here is the video, judge for yourself.  Below is a list of ingredients in the regular flu shot already with many known allergens.  Other link are included.

•Egg proteins: including avian contaminant viruses such as avian leucosis

• Gelatin: known to cause allergic reactions and anaphylaxis – usually associated with sensitivity to egg or gelatin proteins

• Polysorbate 80 (Tween 80): can cause severe allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis

• Formaldehyde: known carcinogen

• Triton X100: a strong detergent

• Sucrose: table sugar

• Resin: known to cause allergic reactions

• Gentamycin: an antibiotic

• Thimerosal: 49.6 percent ethyl mercury (still in multidose vials)
