The Swine Flu is heating up. Where are those vaccines? Several people in our area have died, who I believe probably wouldn't have died from traditional seasonal flu. It seems like, when you look at our ED board, 75% of the complaints are fever, cough, flu-like symptoms, or exposure to flu, or positive flu test. All the pts wear masks, and things are crazy. wait times are through the roof. What will we do for room in the hospital if things get a little worse? Back to the vaccines, I guarantee these same people who rush thekids in for every little sniffle and demand testing and treatment for the swine flu are the same ones who will refuse the vaccine, and we will have to spend just as much time convincing them it is safe.
