Swine Flu Vaccine

Have you researched the new swine flu vaccine? Pediatricians may be advising that your kids get it. Will you vaccinated for the virus? If you're unsure, what do you think about schools become shot clinics this fall? After reading this article, it makes me think there isn't enough time to do a typically study looking at the safety of the vaccine. Yikes! What's a parent to do?

FROM NBC: If CDC officials say a swine flu vaccine is needed, young children may be the first to get it. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says schools should be prepared to turn into shot clinics this fall.

Over sixty percent of h-1-n-1 cases have been in young children and teens, as well as a majority of deaths.

A swine flu vaccine is still in development. Clinical trials testing its safety are planned for late summer. However, S1ebelius says we can't wait until October to plan for widespread vaccination.
Officials are monitoring how the h-1-n-1 virus acts in the southern hemisphere this summer. they're depending on that information to determine whether to move forward with a vaccine, and how they should prioritize the supply.
