YNETNEWS.com (http://goo.gl/jViTZ6) reports that 55 year-old Esther Aryeh died this week after battling the virus for several weeks.

Yehuda Aryeh said his wife and mother to their 6 children may have lived had she been vaccinated.

“Had Esther gotten vaccinated, this might not have happened,” said Yehuda. “I call on everyone to get vaccinated. If the doctors say we should - then we must.”

Of those hospitalized from the virus, three are pregnant women who have been admitted over the past few days to Soroka Medical Center in Be’er Sheva.

One woman underwent a emergency Caesarean section due to the seriousness of her condition.

Its just a name for another strain of the flu. It mutates every year. It just makes better news than calling it H1N1 flu.

Every flu vaccine is not 100% effective as it mutates, but its definitely better to have the shot - especially for those who are more at risk for catching the flu ( pregnant women, children, elderly etc)

It's not about belief, it's about science. Of course many anti vaxers have turned it into a religion of sots with all the required leaps of faith.

swine flu like many other condition where there is limited treatment at end seems to respond to intravenous vitamin c

worth while to google - intravenous vitamin c and 60 minutes new zeland swine flu

great story about a farmer who had end stage swine flu and was on life support

they were ready to pull the plug but family asked for iv vit c as last ditch effort ...he ended up walking out of the hospital on his own ...fascinating story and highlights the value of this treatment when antibiotics and other attempts fail
