1 Million More Doses of Swine Flu Vaccine on Hand
Date:10/28/2009

s, Sebelius said, is that the swine flu continues to be "very mild for most people. But there is no question we are seeing very severe cases hit in populations normally not susceptible to the flu and without underlying health conditions in some cases. Young people and pregnant women have been particular targets of that."

That's a significant difference from run-of-the-mill seasonal flu, which typically poses a much bigger risk to the elderly.

Napolitano and Sebelius both urged people to get their seasonal flu shot as well. It's not clear how the seasonal flu will play out this fall and winter. Seasonal flu season usually starts in the late fall and can run through early to mid-spring.

Sebelius also warned people to be cautious about phony products that claim to cure or prevent the swine flu.

"We are seeing a host of products being sold on the Internet, and the Food and Drug Administration is taking very seriously the advertisement of products pretending to do everything from preventing people from getting the flu to curing the flu, and we intend to take very strong action as quickly as possible," she said.
