Yes. The Swine flu is actually pretty bad in my area. I luckily haven't gotten it. I'm thinking about getting the vaccine, but I'm just not quite sure how I feel about it. Time will tell!

hi steven... look here in southamerica winter in gone and fortunatly h1n1 too... let me tell u about the simtoms... hi fever (38.5c or more) and u can not make down with any pill, sometimes vomits, and pain in ur body... this flu can be confuse by regular flu, so don`t be in panic if u have fever... the meds are very good... i didn`t have it, but my brother did. if u have it u must stay at home for 3 or 4 days not avoid spred the virus... the white mask won`t help u to not have it, because it only helps people who allready has it and their direct family (the ones who has to live with him/her) to avoid spred it.... u must keep the same care u have for a regular flu, avoid places with too many people, specially if there is a chance they are sick (hospitals) drink a lot of water, don`t go crazy on vitamins, just have vitamin C on ur fruits and veggies, wash ur hands often, if u sneeze cover ur mouth with ur arm, not hands. i hope everything it`s ok with u and ur family... and i hope the inormation is usefull to u.

I have taken the H1N1 flu shot. It is the way to keep immunized against this new strain of flu. There are many different strains of flu I think, and one needs to have the flu shot specific to the strain one needs to be immunized. I have also been encouraging my friends to take the shot. I had no side effects at all when I had the shot.
