H1N1 Vaccination Controversy

Today I was emailed a link for this you-tube video which features Doctors in the United States who are speaking out against the H1N1 Vaccine. Take the time to watch (6 minutes) and be informed before you go ahead with any interventions. I do not want to stir up fear...only promote awareness.

If you have already been vaccinated against this flu virus, please know that God is ultimately in control of all things and nothing happens to us that is outside of His Sovereign care!

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." II Timothy 1:7

"The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth forever: forsake not the works of thine own hands." Psalm 138:8

**See also Psalm 91**

I stopped getting the flu vaccine a few years ago after getting sick twice from it and my daughter also. My husband get's it every year because he travels and is stuck in an airplane twice a week and he's never had any problems.

I posted about this on my blog. We went ahead and got the shot. I prayed about it and felt peace about getting this for my children.
However, I would really like to see the you-tube video. I only have dial-up and this won't work for me to watch it. If you get a spare moment could you please e-mail me and fill me in on what these doctors are saying.

Thanks!

While we do vaccinate our children for the really harmful diseases, we've never given our kids what we deem to be "unnecessary" vaccinations such as flu shots. This video just confirms our decision. Thanks for sharing! It is good to stay informed.

Manuela ~ The winter our oldest boy was having open heart surgery we had the flu vaccine as a precaution...you have to weigh up the pros and cons for your own situation...I totally understand the air travel concerns! :)

Jenn ~ I am so glad you took this so graciously! Last night a few hours AFTER I posted this I stopped by your blog and saw that you had taken the vaccine...I felt so terrible because of the timing of my post! I will try to summarize for you in an email.

Jackie ~ We have immunized our children also, but opt out of the flu shots, etc... Back when I was having babies it never even crossed my mind to "think outside the box" when it came to vaccines. If I had it all to do over again would I? Well...let's just say I'm glad I don't have to think that one through! :)

Blessings to you all!

I so agree with you. My poor daughter that is expecting has researched this subject! She has decided not to get the vaccine. She lives in Washington state and she is among just a few. The Doctors are giving her such a hard time about it. All our family has decided not to get it. My husband is a Public School Administrator and we still are not getting it. I ~did get the H1N1 virus but only my mother-in-law got it from me as she was visiting here from Michigan when I came down with it.
You are so right~ultimately God is in control and we can trust HIM!
I love your blog!

Welcome Carrie ~ I'm glad you stopped by...thanks for your compliment...I've been enjoying your blog too.

What a story you have...your poor daughter...so much pressure and worry is not what she needs right now! I can't help but think that there is something to all this pressure people are getting from the system...are we to blindly follow wherever they lead??

I am not saying that it is not the right decision for some...just that we should not succumb to pressure and fear. We should go into something fully informed and comfortable with whatever decision we make.

What a blessing that the Lord IS in Sovereign control!

Have a wonderful weekend!
