The vaccine is still available but few people if any are asking for it now. I have privately told a few people that if we were going to see a return of this virus, it would re-appear when spring temperatures were over 45-50 degrees. Liberal is definitely warm enough for a new outbreak. I have seen only a very few cases of the typical winter flu in the past months, far less than in usual winters past. But yesterday someone came in who had had classic symptoms of H1N1 last week. This was the first probable H1N1 infection I had seen since November.The vaccine is safe, effective and free. It takes 4 weeks to build up immunity to the virus. Because healthy people can die suddenly of H1N1, as we have seen right in Liberal last year, I recommend everyone over the age of 6 months be immunized. Allergy to egg is the only contraindication.
