How is the H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine Made?

November 30, 2009 | By: Robert | Comments ( 0 ) | Posted in: Health

Think you're too busy checking out Cyber Monday deals to care about catching H1N1 swine flu? Well, think about it this way: After you've hovered over a toilet for a week or two with a 103 degree temperature, getting the jump on a $299 laptop won't seem so important.

 

What is important, however, is protecting yourself from the danger and misery of swine flu by getting the H1N1 vaccine. But how exactly is the H1N1 swine flu vaccine produced?

I have a confession to make: I absolutely hate needles. So when a nurse asks to shove a needle into my arm, I want to know exactly what's in it. And since I hate the flu almost as much as I hate needles, I decided to do some research on the H1N1 swine flu vaccine.

 

That's why I was pleased to stumble upon fellow blogger Jason Kottke's in-depth look at how the H1N1 swine flu vaccine is made. And being the kindhearted blogger that I am, I decided to share his wisdom with all of you.

 

You're welcome :-D
