nervousmom asks:

Is my son at risk for swine flu?

I was diagnosed with swine flu 4 days ago. My son who is 12 was vaccinated 2 days into my diagnosis.  I am feeling much better and have bleached and cleaned my house and open windows daily to clear the house. What are the chances of him developing swine flu?

Dear Nervous:

Pretty good actually.  The incubation is one to four days and his vaccine needs two weeks to produce good immunity.  Do the best you can in cleaning common surfaces such as keyboards to computers and phones etc... and good luck.
