IS THE SWINE FLU VACCINE SAFE? Apparently a group of British neurologists doesn't think so; they are now alerting about a possible link to the Guillain-Barré Syndrome, a very serious neurological disorder. Take this with a grain of salt -- it wouldn't be the first case of anti-vaccine hysteria, just like with the false link between the smallpox vaccine and autism, still believed by quite a few people but which was based in manipulated data. Still it's worth following up on this, if you're thinking on getting the shot.
