Obamas Will Get Flu Vaccine

By Ceci Connolly
The first family plans to queue up for the swine flu vaccine -- when the time comes.

President Obama says he's looking to scientific experts to prioritize who gets innoculated when in this country.

"My understanding at this point is that the high-risk populations are going to be first with the vaccine, and that means not only health-care workers, but particularly children with underlying neurological vulnerabilities," he said on CNN's "State of the Union" program Sunday.

"And so we've got to make sure that those vaccines go to them first."

Under that approach, the president said he expected his two daughters would receive the vaccine and that he "may come fairly far down the line" in prioritization.

"We want to get vaccinated. We think it's the right thing to do," he added. "We will stand in line like everybody else. And when folks say it's our turn, that's when we'll get it."

In my opinion, if they put the video of the Obama children on the television the vile they use to give the shot will have saline in it. The Secret Service won’t take the risk that the First Children could get close to mercury.

'The first family plans to queue up for the swine flu vaccine -- when the time comes.' --*Big* mistake...
Gulf War Toxins In Swine Flu Vaccine 23 Aug 2009 The new swine flu vaccine contains a deadly brain toxin linked to autism, Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis. Mercury, a vaccine preservative, was withdrawn from childhood jabs five years ago after evidence linked it to brain damage. However, the Sunday Express has discovered the pandemic vaccine, to be rolled out across the country within weeks, contains the heavy metal. It also contains a chemical called squalene, used to stimulate the immune system to respond to the vaccine. Some scientists believe squalene is linked to autoimmune illnesses including multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. Squalene was included in the anthrax jab given to British and US soldiers during the 1991 Gulf War. Many claim it caused them permanent neurological damage, known as "Gulf War syndrome".

They seem like smart folks, I hope the do some more research and for their sake I hope no one has a severe reaction. Read the ingredients, learn how vaccines work, learn about alternatives.
Vaccines DO NOT equal immunity!! Michelle cares about what she is feeding her kids, they both should care about what they are injecting into their bodies.

Demagoguery at it's best.
You might want to look up propaganda before reading.
