Ho-hum news

"Ho-hum news" is how one fellow blogger describes it. That's the news today of vaccinations starting against swine flu. I have heard some discussion among colleagues and friends about 'should-we or shouldn't-we have the vaccine' but it's probably more concerning that the majority aren't discussing it. It's all part of this culture of swine flu happening to someone else - perhaps an elderly asthmatic grandmother. But you only have to look at the official figures for age groups affected by swine flu - or my unofficial death list - to realise swine flu can strike anyone and everyone. The young and healthy are, in fact, more likely to suffer from swine flu than the older person. Today is the anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar and today begins a new battle - the Battle against Swine Flu.
