What bothers me the most about the comparisons to the flu is that according to the doctors I work with, Americans do not take the flu nearly as seriously as we should. They've been beating that drum for many years.
Also, I don't send my kid to school without her flu shot. Those of us who vaccinate against the flu have always accepted a much lower risk from it than the many who don't.
sillygoosegirl I’m right there with ya. Since having children, we actually do change our behavior a lot around the flu (always vaccinate our whole family, ask anyone staying with us or caring for our children during the newborn phase to get vaccinated, avoid flying with infants during peak transmission, etc). So that does not put my mind at ease.
