H1N1 Heads Back to School Many Northeast Ohioans are putting together back-to-school shopping lists, and, with more than 44,000 confirmed cases of the swine flu, should we all be adding Tamiflu to the list? Public health experts say the answer to that is no, but there are a lot of questions about how we can all prepare for the likely spread of seasonal flu and the H1N1 virus. Join us this morning at 9:00 for answers to your questions about the swine flu and your community.

will the State-wide registery in Columbus track the flu vaccinations and would this be useful should there be a second shot or possible pandemic?

Mary 9:43 AM 8/10/09

When I was a child, the students were gathered into the gymnasium and we all were given tb shots.  Why not implement such a program again and the follow-up would be done by the schools?
