The news is reporting the flu deaths as having resulted from H1N1 strain. Is that covered by this year's flu shot?
I've had my flu shot this year and last year, but I did not get the H1N1 separate shot a few years ago, because my spouse had the H1N1 - after having the regular flu shot that year which didn't cover H1N1 — and got sick REALLY fast (it's a terrible flu, GET the SHOT!) -- but I never got it despite close proximity so I figured I was immune to that strain. Like I said, we all got the shot this year -- but do we need to go out and get another one specifically for H1N1 like a few years ago? The news is confusing.
