I saw my regular doctor today at my HMO and asked him so many questions about the Swine Flu shot. I asked him if one gets Swine Flu now and then recovers, should one get the Swine Flu shot in October or whenever it is offered. The doctor's answer was NO. He said that once you've had the Swine Flu, you won't need the vaccine for it this year. Hope that helps some here.
