Citizen power CDC Town Hall Meetings on H1N1 Virus and Vaccine

Thanks to Ginger Taylor of Adventures in Autism for this link to Flu Wiki. I don't know who runs the
FluWiki site, or who the author of this info, drd1106 is, but the info is worth sharing so you can attend a meeting in your area.

When it comes to vaccinating yourself or your child for H1N1 or any disease, you deserve to be informed, not scared (by either side of the debate, mind you.) From FluWiki:

This is an international website intended to remain accessible to as many people as possible. The opinions expressed here are those of the individual posters who remain solely responsible for the content of their messages.

The use of good judgement during the discussion of controversial issues would be greatly appreciated.
