CDC Panel to Recommend Who Should Get Swine Flu Shot

Unlike seasonal flu, which typically strikes hardest at the very young and the elderly, H1N1 swine flu has proven more troublesome for children and young adults.

"This means that some groups in the population will need to receive more than just one flu shot in order to be protected against all of the influenza strains in circulation," Imperato said. "This is an unusual circumstance and will require additional documentation effort on the part of those administering the flu vaccines and people receiving them to be sure that the appropriate immunizations are given."

"There may also be logistical challenges for patients and health-care providers as we attempt to deliver two different influenza vaccines during the same season," he added.

Then there's the lingering memory of the 1976 swine flu vaccination program, during which some 500 Americans c
