I think you are a bit confused about several things and that is understandable when a loved one is involved. Swine flu is not a name being used currently for the H1N1 virus. In most areas where there have been documented cases patients are not tested if they display the common flu signs. The vaccine, which is not yet available, should prevent or at least lesson the sick feelings and will be a series of two shots.
It is hard to have a loved one sick, and I hope all others in the household are following the prescribed precautions. Hopefully he will feel better very soon. I also feel that the doctors, state and county health officials, school nurses and others responsible are doing the best they can with this potential epidemic. Hang in there Deb and try to understand that there is a lot of false information floating around.
