We asked Facebook fans: Would you allow your child to be enrolled in a clinical vaccine trial, say, for example to test the effectiveness and side effects of an anthrax vaccine?
Here are selected responses,

Like never ever.
I worked for a pharmaceutical company and I know exactly how it works!

oneself up for a clinical trial is one thing, but a parent should be very
cautious with the health of their child. In the absence of a medical
necessity, no child of mine would be in a clinical trial.

am so excited to graduate, I will be thankful for any hours...but daytime
shifts would be preferred since I have a young son.
LOVE working the PM shift. I get so much done during the morning. I always
get to see the light of day, especially during the winter. Time flies
because you are busy, and you don't have to bother with the hassle of
night shift maintenance duties.
all of them. I'm working 1.5 FTE between two jobs.
been working nights for 10 years and don't think that'll changed anytime
soon. I can adjust my sleep to whichever part of the day works best,
depending what I have going on. Also, it's the only shift with consistant
patient contact. It's good to put faces with names, but mainly to remember
that there is a person behind that tube of blood.
day shifts are great. Not too long or too short, just right. Work 4 off 3.
- 10 hour days, doing them in a row and then off 3.
- 7 on/7 off! (It doesn't matter which shift because I'm
like to work 11-7 am or pm.
love my current shift hours 6:45am-3:45pm. I have the rest of the day to
prefer the second shift... less distractions more work done...
were informed yesterday by our lab management that have to reapply for our
positions by November 25. We will be rehired as a 8 hour variable shift
tech. 10 hour shifts have been done away with and we will be assigned to
whatever shift, day, eve or nights, you are needed on.
is from 5pm to 1:30 am and I love it!
4 days a week
many changes going on our lab! If you don't like the changes and chose not
to reapply you get 4 weeks severance pay and adopts that's it!!
for me, 7on/7off either deep nights or second shift. Not a morning person
work a 7 on 7 off night shift. I like it.
to my own devices, I'd keep night-owl hours. So I like working 2nd shift.
It's busy all evening and the night goes quickly. Mornings are free to
sleep late if I need to and make appts for DH and myself when needed. As
many doctor appts as we have had this year, there is no way I could have
managed on 1st shift. Hard to get dr appts between 1530 and 1630. My
retired hubby wishes I was on 1st shift, though. Poor guy.
shift (10:30pm - 7am). Best crew, best work ethic, best attitude...
