Anonymous asks:

Can you get H1N1 more than once?

My middle child is just getting over the flu, and now my wife and oldest son are both showing symptoms.  Is our middle son in danger of getting the virus again?

What the Expert Says:

Not this season.  He can, however, get any other flu circulating in your community. Currently the circulating strain is H1N1. This virus does reappear every so many years. It was last around in the 1970's but changes each time.
