Every time I take the shot I get a bit sick so I am honestly a bit scared to atke this one.

I have a feeling this is an old question. I searched it and found a bunch of information.

I got mine yesterday and it gave me a bit of a low grade temp (99.2) for a little while, but that went away pretty quickly and other than that everything was just fine. I'm glad to have gotten it because who knows what that H1N1 flu would do to HIVers like us. Its not like they can really say the flu won't be bad for us, they don't know that. So, my thing is, better safe than sorry, so I got the shot!!!
