A year ago, scientists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed that they had discovered a new flu strain that was sickening the young and healthy.
The initial clamor for the H1N1 vaccine resulted in hours-long lines at some clinics and health departments. But as the supply increased over the fall, the demand waned, and skeptics questioned its safety. So far, 162.5 million doses of the vaccine have been made available in the United States.
A year later, the flu seems to have largely faded from the public consciousness.
Wow. Hard to believe it was only one year ago.
