      According to the reports from CDC there are some states that it became local and weeks later was wide spread again, I am not sure if you can catch it twice, but virus' are mean and nasty, if that many kids have it, they should close it before everyone gets sick. I don't even know why they are bothering with a vaccinne when by the time it is ready everybody will have had it already.

      Yep, we are one of the states that it is wide spread. 30% of the kids were out of the middle school last Friday with flu like symptoms. So when is it time to shut down the schools - or do we let it go through naturally? Can it be caught again?

      I wish it would go away as well, it just semms to be recirculating. It is also affecting the children here in my home town.

      Thanks for the update. This H1N1 needs to go away, permanently. I hope that will happen this year.
