State health officials say closing schools and wearing facemasks won’t prevent the expected spread of swine flu in the coming months.
So the question is, how do we prevent the spread of the disease – and how concerned should we be? Today, where we live, a swine flu history lesson. We’ll talk with infectious disease specialist Dr. Edwin Kilbourne, who worked on developing swine flu vaccines in the 1970's.
We’ll also hear from the Connecticut company making vaccines now, and from local health departments and schools about how they’re preparing for a potential outbreak.
