Unintended consequences of Swine Flu Scare
So much morbidity and mortality has been incured from the swine flu scare itself, probably more so than from the actuall flu. All this hospital overcrowding and resultant medical errors and increased infections and complications, etc. Then the scare has caused a shortage in the seasonal flu vaccine as well. my 90 yr old grandparents have been unable to get a dose of seasonal flu vaccine because of this. And I don't even want to get into all the costs we have racked up during this scare.
