California’s state health officer said swine flu could affect one in four Californians this fall.

The result? Lost productivity in the workplace and a strained-to-bursting health care system.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends the H1N1 vaccine for more than half the U.S. population, including pregnant women, healthcare workers, parents/caregivers,and people from 6 month to 24 years old, or those ages 25 through 64 with chronic health disorders or compromised immune systems.
