H1N1 and The CDC

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is going to take a close look at just who should receive a swine flu or H1N1 vaccine and when they should get it. According to the latest statistics there have been one million cases of H1N1 in this country and the vast majority have been extremely mild. Out of the one million cases there have been three hundred deaths.

But when flu season hits this fall there is concern there could be more attacks. The question I am asking is this, "In a normal flu season we see about thirty six thousand deaths. Will H1N1 have a higher rate?"

Of course one of the reasons why we are able to limit deaths in the flu season is our attention to vaccinating the public. What the CDC says will certainly have a large impact.
