Vote! Will You Get the Swine Flu Vaccine?
President Obama made sure his daughters were administered the swine flu vaccine. Are you rushing to get the shot?
"I think there's a lot of data on the overall effectiveness and safety of that vaccine," CNN medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta tells "Extra." Dr. Gupta, who contracted the swine flu while in Afghanistan, adds, "In this case, I think the benefits outweigh the risks."
Internist Dr. Derrick DeSilva says you could be fine without the vaccine. "99.9% of people aren't going to die from the flu whether they got the vaccine or not."
