for this Fall?
At the time of this posting, we can report that manufacturers are indeed
developing a new influenza vaccine to prevent infection from the
H1N1 (swine flu) virus.
This flu vaccine is not related to the usual fall flu vaccine.
If you get the usual fall flu vaccine, it may not protect against
the H1N1 (swine flu) virus.
And, if you get the new H1N1 (swine flu) virus vaccine, it may
not protect against the usual flu.
Final point, this new H1N1 (swine flu) virus vaccine is not yet
available, and its safety has not yet been tested.
And so, at this time, we do not know when we will have
vaccine for the H1N1 (swine flu) virus available.
