  • It depends where in the world you are. In the US it generally gets started at about the end of November through March, with the peak in February.

    I have not heard any predictions with this new H1N1 virus. We have to remember that it "started" in Mexico in March, and it was almost summer-like weather there at that time. So, who knows what this flu season will hold? It will either get better as the cold sets in and the regular seasonal flu will kick in, or it will get worse. Only time will tell.
