COLUMBIA, Md., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ --

What: As the flu season approaches and the public becomes increasingly concerned about the threat of the seasonal flu and the importance of getting a flu shot, many parents across the nation are generally confused about what precautions to take as they send their children back to school. Everyone is faced with confusing and conflicting messages regarding seasonal influenza and H1N1 (Swine Flu).

People are frequently asking:
