According to CNN, it looks like the H1N1 vaccine is almost here! Yippee! Seriously though, I have seen personally a sharp rise in flu admissions to the hospitals I work for and find it quite scary my current patient is a lady in her second trimester with possible H1N1. It's not that I am personally scared of H1N1. I've personally never had the flu, I don't believe... there's one time where I may have had the flu but it's sketchy. College life, you know. But, the very young and the very old at risk. Seems to me the obese have a worse case as well.
Here's a chart that I've been following to follow outbreaks. I hope you find it useful.
