In 1918 a flu pandemic killed more people in one year than the world at war had managed to do in 4, shouldnt we take this killer disease more seriously?

hi gabs, where I work we have many cases of people with repressed immunity due to hiv or aides and we have to take it extremely seriously as you can imagine, i too used to try to work through it, but no more, it does kill and should not be treated like a common cold

yes it should be taken very seriously. I make sure I get the flu shot every year. I work in a care facility with elderly, and since they are most at risk for the flu, we must as caregivers get the shot.

Dear friends (Eskarena1 and Grulla are in my friends list), I agree with you (and also wih lilaclady post). I know what OMG think and what can happen, I remember too the asian flu in China (two years ago?) but, please, smile! This discussion is interesting but really scary!
