Guidelines for the Flu Shot
There has been talk that because this strain of the swine flu is particularly detrimental to one's health, there will have to be more than one flu shot administered per person this fall. However, no one knows if this one flu shot will be the one to save us from contracting the flu shot.
Doctors and scientists alike do not know whether this one or two flu shots will be enough for patients this fall. We can only hope that the vaccine that is created will help enough to postpone the impeding epidemic.
Some guidelines and suggestions have already been released, one shot is recommended for older patients that have an otherwise health immune system, two shot will be recommended for patients who have pre-existing health conditions. Some say that patients will need to receive two flu shots, plus one vaccine for the new strain of the flu, and younger children may require up to four flu shots.
