The good news: I finally got my H1N1 vaccine – the nasal variety.
The bad news: I got home, did a little research, and found out that it’s not recommended for people with diabetes (or other chronic illnesses).
I assume that this is because the nasal version of the vaccine is of the “live” variety – not “killed,” and therefore poses more of a danger of actually turning into the real live swine flu.
I told the nurse who administered the vaccine that I had T1 diabetes, and she didn’t bat an eye.
Anyone else have experience with this vaccine? Should I go out and buy a funeral plot?
