Flu Vaccines - Which Should I get?

With all the hype about a horrible flu season, it is hard to imagine there not being a vaccine for the H1N1 virus. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment says its a good idea to get a seasonal flu vaccine soon, before many people start to get on line for the H1N1 virus vaccine.


The pandemic vaccine is still under construction, but while we wait health care professionals are suggesting you get a seasonal flu vaccine, and once a vaccine becomes available for the swine flu virus, you should get that one as well.


It is important to remember that the seasonal vaccination will not provide immunity against the swine flu and that you need to get a swine flu vaccine as well.  More than one vaccine will be needed this flu season to prevent any contraction of the the different types of the flu.
