Common Systemic Side Effects from Swine Flu Vaccines
Systemic effects were also reported by CSL and Novartis vaccine recipients. Approximately 36% of volunteers that received the swine flu vaccine manufactured by CSL experienced mild systemic side effects. 8% of vaccine recipients reported moderate systemic side effects, and less than 1% experienced a severe adverse reaction to immunization. Severe side effects reported include, malaise, muscle pain, and nausea. Muscle aches were the most common systemic side effect reported by participants receiving the H1N1 vaccine produced by Novartis, and no severe systemic side effects were reported. The following are common whole-body side effects occurring in response to either H1N1 vaccination.
- Malaise (feeling out-of-sorts)
- Muscle pain

As I've mentioned before we've been watching through the 80's sitcom Full House and this got me thinking.
What has become of family sitcoms or really family TV in general?
We don't have cable but I still cannot think of 1 show that's on during prime time that I would be able to watch with my kids. Isn't that sad? You always hear of how TV is aiding childhood obesity, so what are they watching? I have fond memories of watching The Cosby Show and ABC's TGIF line up on Friday nights with my family. Where are all the family based shows now? Forget reality TV I want family values back!!! And I'm sure I'm not the only one.
(Feel free to enlighten me if there is some little gem of a show out there that I don't know about. FYI: Hannah Montana doesn't count!)
