sounds to me like they know it's coming. it's not a matter of 'if' it's 'when'. stock pile your cans of food and drink people, avian flu is on it's way. doesn't matter if you get a shot, it'll mutant anyways, especially since it will be going from person to person, it'll ever be changing. nature's way of dealing with over-population.

Shots for what? There are no shots for h5n1 avian flu. Many types of flus out there orginally stem from bird flus, but not this h5n1 avian flu that everyone is worried about. A shot for some other bird flu isn't going to do much. heck, many of us have probably, I would bet, gotten an avian flu in our lives. The problem is that no one living has ever gotten an h5n1 type of avian flu (short of the recent infectees).

I read this news report then as a sensationalistic presentation of a moderately normal event. They might be getting these shots in hopes of having a little bit of defense against an h5n1 type of avian flu, but its not going to make much of a difference, therefore I don't read this as the actions of people that 'know' or 'strongly expect' an h5n1 pandemic to erupt in the UK soon.

Personally, I think it's a lot of scaremongering crap.

Would you actually want to be vaccinated against it if your family etc wasn't??

From what I heard, IF any shots were to be given they'd only be given to the elderly, those with lowered immune systems and the like. It would be impossible to vaccinate whole countries anyway.. I mean, from what we can tell, it just turned up (expected or not) and how are you supposed to vaccinate a nation in a matter of hours? I think not.. of course we can rely on the government being the first if anything.

First of all IF there was a shot/vaccine available it would go to the health care workers and military first. Then it would be dispensed as necessary to the rest of us.
This particular strain actually targets the healthy young individuals between 20 to 40ish not the elderly per se just as the Spanish Flu did.

But none you worry there isn't a shot to be given so we are all gonna die anyway.

The end is near, we are all going to die...

Now we have an apocalyspe every day here on ATS. I am getting bored.

Ok this is my first post here, have been reading for a while but just didnt feel intelligent enough to post lol.
All this bird flu worry just seems daft, theres only been sumthing like 100 people die from it it in 10 years and every one is filling there pants!
The worst thing that will probably happen is we do get it here in the uk, a few birds die and we get a shortage of chicken nuggets. i cant see it getting any worse than that.

i agree do you not all remeber SARS its not the same i know but that was supossed to become an epidemic but its not even mentioned anymore it just seemed to dissapear from news and minds. I doubt that much will hapen and apparently weve had a problem like this in the past and were all still alive

sounds to me like they learned a lesson from katrina......soldiers, police and medics will be less inclined to desert their posts in order to take care of their families if they know that said families are being well protected.
