    Swine Flu

    Swine Flu

    We’ve all noticed it. The coughing in B hall, a couple people missing in each of your classes, and those long attendance office lines, stretching to as many as 40 people. You’ve had a sub in one of your classes for a few days this week, and your classroom is seeing a lack of tissue boxes.

    The reason: The flu.

    But what about the swine flu? In August, wasn’t it forecasted that 100,000 people would be wiped out a week in the U.S. alone? Or that 1/3 of your local population would submit to it in the fall and winter? Or that maybe every one in twenty of your classmates would suddenly disappear during the school year?

    Whatever rumors were flying around about massive swine flu killings, however, have now been vanquished by talk of vaccines. 350,000 vaccines arrived in California the second week of October, and Los Angeles County expects to receive about 95,000. While this vaccine has some parents nervous about side effects and some even largely speaking out against the vaccine, others have disregarded this concern and chosen to get the nasal spray for their children. Junior Brandan Abbott says, “Parents should just go for it. There might be side effects, but I think being protected against swine flu outweighs any possible side effects.”

    Still, a poll conducted by Harvard Opinion Research found that (as of September 20) while 52% of parents are concerned that their family will get swine flu, only 40% will get be taking their family to get the new vaccine. 41% said they would not, 11% said a tentative yes, and 6% said they didn’t know.

    While you may or may not get the vaccine, be sure to take precautions against even the normal flu. Use hand sanitizer after you brush by that guy who just sneezed in D hall. Follow things as basic as washing your hands before you eat or sneezing into your arm. And who knows? Maybe the flu won’t get the best of you this year.

    We’ve all noticed it. The coughing in B hall, a couple people missing in each of your classes, and those long attendance office lines, stretching to as many as 40 people. You’ve had a sub [substitute] in one of your classes for a few days this week, and your classroom is seeing a lack of tissue boxes.

    The reason: The flu.

    But what about the swine flu? In August, wasn’t it forecasted [is there a better word?] that 100,000 people would be wiped out a week in the U.S. [United States (spell out when used as a noun)] alone? Or that 1/3 [one-third (do not use figures for fractions with a denominator of nine)] of your local population would submit to it in the fall and winter? Or that maybe every one in twenty [numbers larger than 10 are written in digits, not spelled out] of your classmates would suddenly disappear during the school year?

    Whatever rumors were flying around about massive swine flu killings, however, have now been vanquished by talk of vaccines. 350,000 [Spell out figures when they begin a sentence] vaccines arrived in California the second week of October, and Los Angeles County expects to receive about 95,000. While this vaccine has some parents nervous about side effects and some even largely speaking out against the vaccine, others have disregarded this concern and chosen to get the nasal spray for their children. Junior Brandan Abbott says, “Parents should just go for it. There might be side effects, but I think being protected against swine flu outweighs any possible side effects.”

    Still, a poll conducted by Harvard Opinion Research found that (as of September [Sept.] 20) while 52% [52 percent] of parents are concerned that their family will get swine flu, only 40% [40 percent] will get be [extra word] taking their family to get the new vaccine. 41% [Again, spell out figures when they begin a sentence. Forty-one percent] said they would not, 11% [11 percent] said a tentative yes, and 6% [six percent] said they didn’t know.

    While you may or may not get the vaccine, be sure to take precautions against even the normal flu. Use hand sanitizer after you brush by that guy who just sneezed in D hall. Follow things [rules] as basic as washing your hands before you eat or sneezing into your arm. And who knows? Maybe the flu won’t get the best of you this year.

    Swine Flu

    Swine flu. Those two words have been whispered all around school. Bob has it. Betty had it. In August, wasn’t it predicted the swine flu would hit Southern California hard? Last you checked, Bob’s status on AIM said: “going to doctor. will be fine.”, and Betty was very much alive. What’s really happening with this flu?

    The rumors that have been flying around for the past month about swine flu spreading uncontrollably, though, have now been vanquished by the arrival of nasal spray vaccines. Approximately 350,000 vaccines arrived in California the second week of October, and Los Angeles County expects to receive about 95,000. This vaccine, however, has some parents nervous about side effects and some even strongly protesting against it; the worried parents say the vaccine is too new and not yet completely pronounced safe.
