Many of the problems and complications of swine flu are due to pneumonia. Sue and I recently got standard pneumonia vaccinations which protects against most of the common strains. It certainly can’t hurt.
It also appears that we’ve both had swine flu – and are fine now. Ours was the mild variety, and even with that you’ll be down for several days. Severe cases of swine flu often mean hospitalization. So, be careful, and wash your hands repeatedly during the day.
