What the Expert Says:

Most of us who were alive in the 1970's have some immunity to the H1N1 since it last circulated then.  Children do not.  If your doctors did not recommend the vaccine, they are following national CDC protocols correctly. They do, however, recommend you get the seasonal flu vaccine.
