  • I am more worred about the side effects of a rushed vacciene. Look at what happend with the swine flu of '76.

  • Anon, when the fall of 2009 comes and goes, if nothing much happens, will you come forward and admit you are wrong? Without using the ANON button?

    And yes, if I'm wrong, I'll admit to it.

  • i think that this is just the beginning and when fall hits it will be a lot worse then it is now!!

  • Okay, and your point is?!? If you read the article about the 2nd ( which was actually the 1st) confirmed death in the US, you will see that the person that died lived VERY close to Mexico. Quit trying to scare people, the media is doing a bang-up job of that already!!

  • Still 2,999.338 cases short or a typical average flu season, and the death toll is even further behind.

    Answer by NotPanicking at 2:14 PM on May. 6, 2009

  • Yeah those should both be commas, it is absolutely several million short of the non-seriousness that is regular flu

    Answer by NotPanicking at 2:14 PM on May. 6, 2009

    good article to read. I don't necessarily think fall will be worse. Use common sense, I wouldn't be afraid. If you or your children have compromised amune system then maybe, just talk to your dr. I take flu short but do not intend to take swine flu one. I take it because I have asthma.
