H1N1: Yet Another Good Reason to Get Your Flu Shot

At around 6 pm this evening, I listened to a radio host at KFI, the largest radio station in Los Angeles, do a segment on swine flu. The host has a four year old daughter, and he noted that medical researchers have recently put out a study that found that children who got their swine flu shot showed signs of strong immunity to H1N1 just ten days after receiving the vaccine. That’s a very good immune response after a vaccination. I have a three and six year old myself, and I got them their shots two weeks ago. It brings a lot of peace of mind to get the swine flu shot, the flu shot, and the pneumonia shot this season (the pneumonia shot, by the way, lasts for ten years and can arrest some of the most serious complications from the flu).
