The swine flu vaccine was approved for release by the FDA. It will be about 4 weeks before you are able to be vaccinated. In the meantime, you may have a number of questions regarding the vaccine and its safety. It is important to be educated about the virus and vaccine before making a decision regarding whether you should be vaccinated. By being educated you can protect yourself and others, including family members or coworkers.

Another great resource is, which is a site maintained by the United Department of Health and Human Services. There is also a wealth of information on non-government websites and there several worthwhile free webinars available.
