If you are going to come out and say "there were 2 influenza related pediatric deaths reported" please be more specific. Did these children have other conditions, were they not properly cared for? U can't go around writing such a vague statement without elaborating on WHY these children died. I understand it is a blatant scare tactic, but really.

I sure as hell would! My work is making us get the shot. If we don't we have to wear a mask, all shift (except meals), until March. :( it's wonderful!

Just read AGAIN that this is going to be the worst flu season ever and that we all need shots! AGAIN not as is again this year, but as in again EVERY year!! Do people not have memories? We hear this stuff EVERY year, and still have never had a pandemic or epidemic or whatever it is in this country where otherwise healthy people are dying over it. Ugh. Every stinking year!

Don't you know, it's BECAUSE so many got the flu shot that we didn't have an epidemic! ;)
