NEW - 20 Jul 2009 1918 and 2009 H1N1 Similarities Confirm Recombination
Hopefully, we will be able to choose whether to accept the H1N1 vaccine. Current rumblings about mandatory vaccination are considered "foilhead" talk by some. I hope that's true. Perhaps now is the time to research and decide on your own. We all want the best and safest thing for our families.

I'll post new items here as they become available. Be safe all.
