    Some H1N1 clinics open to general public now in Ontario

    I got my H1N1 vaccine today. Did you? Are you planning to get it?

    I'm not eligible where I live (not in any of the designated high risk groups). Even if I was eligible, I would not get it.

    So instead you'll get it and spread it?

    Here they just opened the clinics, just today to the public. So you could be eligible. Maybe they just have not opened up the clinics to the non-high risk groups yet.

    Health Canada says there is going to be enough vaccine for everyone, if they would like to have it.

    I feel perfectly fine. I was a bit extra tired this afternoon, but I just have some muscle stiffness in the area of the injection.

    I over heard a fellow talking in the store and he said the clinic in the mall had the vaccine, so I went there and it was not even a 10 minute wait.

    By the time I'm eligible the worst of it will be over. And if I do get it, I will go into hibernation until it's gone, so I don't infect anyone else.

    I stand corrected. It'll be available to all Albertans as of early next week. So I will be eligible, but no, I still won't be getting it.

    I take it you either weren't there on the day of or slept through the class on incubation periods?

    I'm not getting mine either (as of now, I may change my mind). I am never around anyone anyways. I'm doomed to get the virus now that I said that.

    Did either of you see the movie Quarantine? or Blindness? or The Andromeda Strain?

    Hi STP, I am not often around people either. I was shocked when it was suspected last month that I had H1N1 because I am not around a lot of people. I was already over the fever etc, but I had all the symptoms and had never had a flu before.

    Even still I recomend it. I think because I was not around many people it may have left me even more vunerable to it.

    I know it is hard to go to the clincs when it is busy, but I went during the day time, in the early afternoon. I just happened to find a local walk in clinic that was offering it.

    I was out of the clinic within a half hour at the most.

    I am thinking now that all the high risk folks are vaccinated that the crowds are leveled out a bit.

    The nurse stayed with me for about five minutes afterwards and I just waited 15 minutes in the waiting room before leaving.

    As I said earlier, the only thing I noticed is I was a bit more sleepy this afternoon than usual and my arm hurts. Aside from that I feel fine.

    I would reconsider STP if you can get to a clinic. Maybe even ask your GP if they are offering it. Some of the larger doctors offices are apparently getting it. My GP is in a solo practice so that is why she didn't get it.
