CDC cautions vigilence in H1N1 battle

The nation continues to see dwindling numebrs in the H1N1 swine flu outbreak, but the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning people to continue good sanitary behavior and get immunized.

Dr. Anne Schuchat of the CDC said, "We don't know what's going to happen over the next several weeks and months but in 1957, they essentially gave all clear whistle in that December/January time period, they had vaccine and didn't encourage its use, and yet they did go on to see that increase in mortality."

Experts believe 60 million Americans have been vaccinated so far.
