People should be vaccinated for both the H1N1 flu and the "regular" seasonal flu, she said. Both vaccines are safe and made in the same way and been given to millions of people without any serious side effects, Peacock said. Because the injected vaccine is made from a killed virus, "you can't get the flu from the flu shot," or from the nasal spray vaccine, which has a weakened form of the virus, she added.

"Anyone who wants to reduce the chances of getting seasonal or 2009 H1N1 flu should get vaccinated," Peacock said.

If you have already had a confirmed case of the H1N1 flu, you probably can get by without getting vaccinated, Peacock said, but if you just think you have had the
