Flu hype, have you heard enough yet?
If you are wondering what the govment is doing about it, check out the CDC website at http://www.cdc.gov/flu
They expect the 2009 season to cause illness, hospital stays and deaths this season. Duh.
In any case, they have information on Flu Basics, Prevention, Treatment, and free resources. They also have information for specific groups such as people with diabetes, asthma, etc.
