President Obama is asking Americans to prepare for another wave of H1N1 flu this fall.
He expressed confidence in government preparations for any outbreak, but says, Americans have their own responsibilities to fend off the flu. The President said that taking steps, as simple as washing your hands or sneezing into your sleeve not your hand, helps in spreading the flu. The President says progress is being made on a H1N1 vaccine and while not mandatory, being vaccinated is strongly recommended.
