With 2009 H1N1 Cases on the Rise, New CDC-Recommended Vaccine Helps Protect Families Against Illness

The 2009 H1N1 vaccine works as a complement to the common influenza vaccine. This means that families should speak with their healthcare providers about the best plan to receive both vaccinations this year. The CDC advises that though the vaccine is officially now available, every state will develop a
