As the flu season approaches, getting the regular flu shot is generally good advice. This year we have the H1N1 version threatening young folks for the most part. Just what should we do?
The Obama Administration is working hard to sell Americans on a special vaccine that is largely untested. I’d wait until a few million Kool-aid drinking believers have taken it and lived to tell about it. The majority of physicians and nurses I talked with are in no hurry to offer themselves as laboratory rats. They are passing on the H1N1 immunization for themselves and families at least for the time being.
I took the advice and got a flu shot and the extra protection of a phenomena shot warranted by my age and general health.
We are in uncharted territory with every new strain of any type of infection threatening our population.
