The government is looking for a few volunteers to donate 9 days of their time in exchange for up to $3000.  The only catch, you have to be willing to be injected with the swine flu.

The National Institute of Health is trying to find a cure for the flu and are needing volunteers to help in the research.   They have advanced in their research but now they need to actually test it on humans.

They are testing various forms of the flu, the regular, H1N1 and Swine Flu.

They will inject the volunteer with the flu, and then that volunteer will be monitored in a hospital for 9 days.  So in essence, you get a 9 day sick vacation.

Hey if you are up for volunteering, then you can apply online here or give them a call at 1-800-411-1222.
