Just a mild flu according to a doctor on foxnews this am. The media tries to play it up for ratings.

H1N1 is very real.

We’re all in good shape here in the USA and Canada because of our access to the modern health-care system. The people this flu will hurt the most though are those in the most deprived countries, and/or those in an already weakened state. Mexico was hit pretty hard last year but when this thing hits Africa it’s gonna be real bad.

Should you get your flu shot? Absolutely, and especially if you’re in contact with groups of people where the virus can easily spread.

I’m a Nurse…BTDT and will be getting my “shot” as soon as it’s available.

I was wondering because I have adult leukemia and my immune system it not to high?
I get my regular shop every year but I guess they have a special shot for H1N1.

Its getting a lot of media attention, which fuels the fear. The only epidemiological evidence that this strain may be more virulent is its unusual seasonal activity. aside from that , no public health authority can say with confidence what the outcome will be.
