"More than half of Britons being offered vaccination against pandemic H1N1 flu are turning it down because they fear side effects or think the virus is too mild to bother.

A survey of more than 100 family doctors indicated that there was widespread resistance from patients, and that on average only 46 percent of those offered the vaccination agree to have it."

The article also states that:

"Polls show that only about half of Americans plan to be vaccinated against H1N1. Of those who do not, about half say they worry about safety."

and Dr Mercola adds in his comment that:

"Echoing the majority of Britons who have decided to skip the swine flu vaccine, nearly 7 out of 10 Americans in the 18-29 age bracket said they will not get the H1N1 vaccine, according to an ABC News-Washington Post poll on October 22. Ditto for 62 percent of those aged 30-64, and 53 percent of seniors, aged 65 and over."

However Dr Mercola also says:

"But this doesn’t mean the hard-sell vaccine push is over. Far from it.

Even as Quest Diagnostics’ Health Trends Report showed that H1N1 cases appear to have peaked in October, with rates of positive H1N1 test results declining in nearly all age groups and most U.S. regions since late October, the CDC still recommends getting vaccinated."
