You'll hear lots more about H1N1 "swine" flu and how it will change pharmacy flu shot programs this fall.

Flu vaccines. Expect to see high demand...for both seasonal and H1N1 flu vaccines. The H1N1 vaccine will be separate since it's too late to add it to this year's seasonal vaccine.

The H1N1 vaccine might require two shots...since most people have never been exposed and don't have any immunity. The first shot is a "priming" dose...the second several weeks later is a "booster" shot.
