SWINE FLU VACCINATION OVER AGE 64!! READ THIS
Also, if you had the Asian Flu in 1957, you also still have much immunity to H1N1. The 1957 epidemic was the last H1 outbreak.
We DO need the "seasonal" flu vaccine (which is soething entirely different).
This is from the Federal Government:
"The committee recognized the need to assess supply and demand issues at the local level. The committee further recommended that once the demand for vaccine for these target groups has been met at the local level, programs and providers should begin vaccinating everyone from ages 25 through 64 years. Current studies indicate the risk for infection among persons age 65 or older is less than the risk for younger age groups. Therefore, as vaccine supply and demand for vaccine among younger age groups is being met, programs and providers should offer vaccination to people over the age of 65.
