    Actually the average American and Canadian don't really have to worry
    much about the Mexican flu. Because we are generally vaccinated for
    everything, we usually get over it in a few days, where the Mexicans
    because of their poor health care become extremely sick, anumber die
    ( usually the very young, the aged or infirmed) .

    You can't be vaccinated against swine flu yet.

    Why reply? It's one of Mike Reid's sockpuppets probably.

    Ah! I see what you mean. It is a troll. If you don't get its posts,
    or at present as you are on Google, if you don't take the trouble to
    reply, it may just get bored and go away.

    I know, have a friend in the virology lab, he says the Mexican
    population don't /can't get proper care and that's why so many have
    died. There was an 11 yr. old girl who was confirmed to have it on
    Monday ( just 100 miles away) she's already feeling so much better
    that she was sent home. One in BC was serious, and he is doing alot
    better. So it seems he was right.

    First of all, stop cross-posting bull****. "Swine Flu" is no different from
    any other mutating strain of flu. Good lord, we haven't been able to
    vaccinate against a shifting virus, ever, which is why flu shots are so
    inneffective. Every year there is a different strain of flu. What's the
    big fugging deal about "swine flu"? Media madness, that's what. And it's
    not spread by eating pork or from eating vegetables imported from Mexico.

    The most sensible post I've seen on this subject yet. Well done Jill. :-)

    Closing the schools around here did an IMMENSE amount of damage,
    especially since the day cares followed suit. It directly affected my
    own workplace.

    Excellent idea.

    I don't think that's known at this time. There is significant concern
    by the people in charge of worrying about this, that it might turn out
    to be something different. It could be a major problem. Since they
    don't know yet, it might just fizzle out.

    There are two kinds of flu, A and B. The annual flu shot protects
    against both of them. However, they both mutate, and the vaccine has to
    be produced so far in advance, that they often guess wrong on what is
    going to spread.

    At first I thought it was "media madness" also. I'm not so sure now.
    Still, it may turn out to be a false alarm. Although it is called
    "swine" flu, you can only get it from a living pig that currently has
    the flu, and not from eating pork, as you say. Most people will get it
    from other people who are sick.
