“Politicians' reaction to swine flu does not match threat”

Symptoms of H1N1 flu are no more serious than those of a regular flu, while vaccines can cause injuries and death, said Barbara Loe Fisher, president of the National Vaccine Information Center.

Meanwhile, swine flu continues to spread panic around the world.

With only a month before the new school year starts, parents in the US are growing increasingly concerned over how to protect their children against the virus.

National Vaccine Information Center is calling on President Barack Obama and the US government to provide concrete evidence that it is essential for children to get vaccinated against the virus.
