The CDC's National and Regional Summary of Select Surveillance Components reports that so far this flu season (they go off fiscal year...so since Oct '08) there have been 55 flu or flu-associated pediatric deaths...thats 54 more than the Swine Flu here in the states...

Please check out the below link...it has tons of free Flu-prevention information...

CDC - Influenza (Flu) | Free Flu Materials

Also, here is the CDCs page about the Swine Flu...

Take care of yourselves and your little ones!!

I was just reading about that. I had already decided I'd keep doing all the things I do to keep flu/colds from my kids, and I'm glad that's what the cdc is saying to do.

What is scary I woke up this morning at 5:20 to very watery stools and then now I am having trouble keeping things down... I know it is not the swine flu ,but it does have me thinking. How do you get sick when I have not left the house other than taking my son to school

I'm really sick and tired of all the fear mongers making the Swine Flu out to be this awful thing...

Stay healthy. Eat healthy. Wash your dang hands... problem solved.
