There is very little risk in regards to the H1N1 vaccine in Canada. Unlike a regular seasonal flu shot, which quite often contains a small amount of live virus, the H1N1 shot does not contain any live virus. This means that the shot will in no way contribute to you getting the H1N1 flu.
There can always be a risk of allergic reaction to a shot of any kind, however the statistical risk of the flu is much much greater than that of recieving a vaccine shot.
It's good that people are asking questions, but the mass fear isn't needed. As children we all got mumps, measels, tetnus, hepatitis, etc, shots. These are all the same idea. If it was still readily available I would say get the shot.
In terms of the Calgary Flames situation. That was a huge farce used by the media for ratings / opposition publicity. I work in health care for Alberta Health Services and cannot believe someone got fired for that. At that point, everyone and their dog was in line to get the shot and personal Dr's offices were even starting to get the vaccine. So the Flames did nothing wrong. It was just mismanaged the whole country wide. Not the Flames fault.
