How concerned should we be about this year's flu season?
Reports show an above average flu season here in the us. How concerned do you think we should be? Will this prove like the swine flu epidemic of 2009 and lead to a vicious early flu season but then fade more quickly than expected?
I think we should always be concerned enough to at least get a flu shot. Especially for children and the elderly. For everyone else as well, as we interact with children and the elderly. People can be carriers of the flu and never develop symptoms.
Very true. I typically don't get a flu shot (I am not against immunizations in general - I'm up to date on the rest). I guess I just figured for a relatively healthy person in my 20s who doesn't interact w/ anyone immuno compromised.... why bother
I think very concerned my whole family got the flu it is a very serious thing makes you very sick where I live there are record outbreaks
I do think we should be concerned, but the flu comes around every year, and unless we are hitting epidemic or pandemic levels, I think we should just follow normal prevention strategies. I think it's more dangerous to have a panic.

Just curious to see how many people are really feeling the effects of the Swine Flu or is it all just to cause mass hysteria.
