Frontline health and social care workers will be among the first to be vaccinated in October along with people with serious underlying health problems and pregnant women. However a survey by Nursing Times has found many frontline nurses have reservations. Only one in three said they are prepared to have the H1N1 vaccine with a third undecided and the rest saying no. Almost 1,500 nurses were polled, of whom 91 per cent said they were frontline. It comes after news that parents are also concerned about the vaccine, with worries predominantly about the safety of its contents, side effects, and the amount of testing that will be done.
Of the nurses who said they would not get vaccinated, 60 per cent said concern about the safety of the vaccine was the main reason. A further 31 per cent said they did not consider the risks to their health from swine flu to be great enough, while nine per cent thought they would not be able to take time out of work to get immunised.
"I would not be willing to put myself at risk of, as yet, unknown long-term effects to facilitate a short-term solution," said one respondent. A further respondent said: "I have yet to be convinced there is a genuine health risk (from swine flu) and it’s not just government propaganda."

The BS is being laid on AWEFULLY thick by the goons in the gov and the corpo-puppet media. The propaganda even in my local media and newspapers is beyond disturbing.
I am trying to educate everyone I care about not to volunteer as these people's lab-rats.
