I am in school and I worry that I will bring germs home to my daughter. I got a regular flu vaccine but not swine flu (none available here!) what can I do to keep her room, our house, and me sanitized properly after and during school? Am I overreacting?

i'm not so much, but i think the media has led ppl to overreact so they'll run to get that vaccine. its no worse than the "regular flu" (pretty sure they're almost the same bug). in fact my friends DH had it and she and her DD never got it. The baby was just a year old. I've known a few ppl who've had the H1N1 and are just fine, they said its just like having the regular flu. so just practice normal hygiene and you'll be fine.
