H1N1 Influenza Immunization

H1N1 influenza gets our priorities straight for immunization. Those of us over 50 years old appear to have a relative immunity probably from past exposure to a related virus. The severe H1N1 infections are appearing in children and pregnant women, therefore, they are first priority for immunization. They should always be first priority for immunization. Immunization protects against infection and it breaks the cycle of spreading the infection. Children are the ones moving around and spreading an infection, not old people.
