I refused to get all hyped up this year when everyone was scrambling to get flu shots, mist, H1N1 or otherwise.

Sure, I made a few calls to my pediatrician.

But they didn't have any, at least for those of us not high risk.

The more people talked about it and told stories of entire families being hospitalized, waiting in line at country-run clinics for 5 hours only to be turned away, etc....the more I wanted to just ignore the whole thing.

What can you do about the flu?

Well, being educated can help. So, while my emotions say, "Whatever" {fingers in a W}, my mind has reviewed and bookmarked informative sites like and 5 Minutes for Mom.

Janice Croze (really nice lady) of and pediatrician Dr. Mark Rosenberg address some of the of the most frequently asked questions about flu in her series.

Things like:

  • Understanding the Difference Between the Common Cold and Flu; Fun and Easy Tips to Keep Germs at Bay
  • Tips for Planning Ahead this Flu Season
  • Best Resources to Check Out for the Latest About Flu

You can bet I'll be re-reading this stuff when the next wave of flu hits our school. If nothing else, it will help me keep those fingers in a W...and avoid waiting in a 5 hour line just because everyone else is.

I'd love to know how did you dealt with the flu hype this year. Leave me a comment and let me know!
