  • Most likely yes since it is behaving like general flu. But keep in mind even general flu can be dangerous.

  • Not likely. There are several flu strains and once you have had one type it's very unlikely you will catch that same one again. Your body will build antibodies against it.

  • Yes, you can. Swine flu is just like any other kind of flu.
