Childhood Deaths and H1N1

According to the CDC, just released, 76 children have died from H1N1 as of last friday.  And this is early in the flu season.  Between 44 and 88 children die every year from seasonal flu.  Most are usually those with underlying medical illnesses that make them particularly susceptable.  What is disconcerting is that 30% of those who have died from this H1N1 are "normal" children. That is they have no underlying medical illness.  The CDC recommends those between 6 months and older get vaccinated.  Again what the anti vax chiropractor here in Minot and others who advocate no vaccines are lethally wrong.
