H1N1 (swine) flu is the new kid in town...or is it?
"In 1976, the White House urged that everyone get a vaccine when swine flu threatened the nation. More than 40 million people were inoculated; about 25 people died from the vaccine. The flu epidemic never materialized in the US."
First it was bird flu (haven't heard about that one lately) now it's swine flu, then it will be some other flu. Doesn't it just seem like the government keeps trying to throw us into a panic? All anyone has to do is do what your mother told you to do:
- Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze
- Wash your hands
- Don't hang around sick people
- Stay at home if you are sick
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is my proposed health care plan for America.
Thank you, and good night!
