You asked the right person. I just watched a web-cast by the CDC on Thursday morning. First, wash, wash, wash. That's the first defense. Secondly, don't forget the regular seasonal flu, the resulting problems are almost as bad. The flu shot is available right now for about $20 at the clinics at CVS or Walgreens. The H1N1 shots should be available later this month but it's already spreading, so avoid Drs. offices (I can't so washing like crazy) or hospitals if possible until the shots are available or enclosed spaces with lots of people (Malls, etc.). When h1n1 is available, it will be a series of 2 shots in 30 days...get it because this is going to be a pandemic season.
