As Swine Flu Wanes, Don't Be Fooled
Latest Cold and Flu News
THURSDAY, Jan. 7 (HealthDay News) -- Although only four states are now reporting widespread H1N1 swine flu activity, U.S. health officials caution that a new outbreak is possible.
People should get vaccinated against the H1N1 flu while there is a lull in flu activity and vaccine supplies are plentiful, Dr. Anne Schuchat, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said at a Thursday afternoon press conference.
"Complacency is probably our top enemy," Schuchat said.
"I am concerned that people may think this is all over," she added. "I would hate for people to make decisions thinking there is no risk and then get sick or severely ill."
