When it comes to the H1N1 Virus, misinformation and hysteria is way easier to find than reliable information you can use and act on. We’ll try to rectify that Monday morning at 9. We'll get your questions answered; we'll hear from a school that closed last week due to suspected infections and we'll talk to a representative from the Cleveland Clinic about their free vaccination program.

My family is currently being treated for the swine flu-3 out of 4 of us have the flu. Are we in danger of being reinfected if exposed to the virus again?
I hope your family is feeling better, Diane. Unless your diagnosis has been lab confirmed as H1N1 Swine Flu, it is possible that they could have contracted seasonal flu. Consequently, it is recommended that people get vaccinated against both, if they are eligible. Once you have seasonal flu or swine flu, you are protected for that season.
