Well lucky for all our Canadians friend, you get to chose the H1N1 vaccine withou adjuvants as is been approved in Canada here in the US we get no Choices on how we can be poisoned.
So at least you have a choice.

Health Canada has approved the use of adjuvant-free swine flu vaccine made in Canada for pregnant women and healthy people aged 10 to 64,
Public health officials and journalists have overstated the importance of the swine flu, a former Ontario chief medical officer of health says.
Backgrounder: Use of Unadjuvanted H1N1 Flu Vaccine
Who has the unadjuvanted H1N1 flu vaccine been approved for?
The Government of Canada ordered enough adjuvanted H1N1 flu vaccine for all Canadians who need and want it based on WHO advice. We also ordered 2 million doses of unadjuvanted vaccine for pregnant women and very young children.
The additional order of unadjuvanted H1N1 flu vaccine and the latest research which shows unadjuvanted H1N1 flu vaccine to be less effective in young children has resulted in a surplus supply of the unadjuvanted vaccine.
Both the adjuvanted and unadjuvanted H1N1 flu vaccines are safe and effective. The latest research shows both the adjuvanted and unadjuvanted H1N1 flu vaccines provide a strong immune response on average in over 90 per cent of the people who received them in clinical trials. For people between 10 and 64 years of age with healthy immune systems, both the adjuvanted and unadjuvanted vaccines provide an excellent immune response. Unadjuvanted H1N1 flu vaccine is the recommended formulation for pregnant women.
To ensure we keep immunizing people at a brisk pace and continue to build immunity to the virus in communities across the country, we are broadening our recommendations for the use of unadjuvanted vaccine. Specifically, the extra doses of unadjuvanted H1N1 flu vaccine will be made available to healthy people between the ages of 10 and 64 so they can be vaccinated as soon as possible. This will not affect the availability of unadjuvanted vaccine for pregnant women.
Unadjuvanted flu vaccine is not recommended for everyone
For some particular groups, the unadjuvanted vaccine may not provide as strong an immune response. For this reason, it is recommended that the following groups not receive the unadjuvanted vaccine:
People with weakened immune systems
Children between 6 months and 9 years of age
People 65 years of age and older

Last night, my roommate was dropping his kids off at his exes. On his way back home, he reported seeing a smaller twin/turboprop plane flying low, which was obviously unusual.
He said that the plane let out a plume of brown dust/smoke while making a pass over the city. He was quite shaken and shocked to have witnessed such a thing.
Witnessed in Lethbridge, Alberta at approximately 1900 hrs Nov 16,2009.
GREAT NEWS -- No Squalene Allowed in US Swine Flu Vaccines!
Fortunately, Americans can draw a sigh of relief as it pertains to squalene -- one of the most controversial of the adjuvants -- at least for now.
Although vaccine manufacturers were pushing to be allowed to use squalene in many of the swine flu vaccines, and the US Department of Health and Human Services purchased spent more than $400 million of tax payers' money to stockpile the oil-based adjuvant, their efforts have been unsuccessful so far.
In order to legally allow unlicensed squalene adjuvants to be included in licensed H1N1 vaccines, the US government would have had to issue an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).
There have been small H1N1clinical trials in which experimental squalene adjuvants were included and tested, which have been reported by various media sources, fueling the questions about its use. But that is different from an FDA licensed vaccine that is made available for general public use.
To date, no EUA has been issued, so the swine flu vaccines licensed for use in the US do NOT contain squalene. However, it is still unclear whether the National Emergency declaration issued by President Obama on October 23, 2009, will cover adding novel adjuvants like squalene, or whether a separate EUA must be issued to allow the use of unlicensed adjuvants.
The best way to confirm the existence of vaccine components is to consult the vaccine product manufacturer inserts. Below, you will find links to the inserts for the four H1N1 vaccines licensed for use in the US.
You may also want to review the transcript of the July 23, 2009 meeting of the FDA Vaccines & Related Biological Products Advisory Committee for more information on the discussion about whether the FDA should issue an EUA and allow unlicensed adjuvants in US vaccines.
Thankfully, so far, the FDA has declined to approve squalene adjuvants for US H1N1 vaccines, but that does not mean that the drug companies will not continue to press for approval in the future.
