Informed About Swine Flu (H1N1)

Interesting series of presentations about SwineFlu, the vaccine(s) and some minor history if influenza dating back to 1918.  If you aren't up on your immunology, influenza knowledge, and vaccine manufacturing methodologies, this will be *very* enlightening.  

Hat tip to Mike on Feveriam channel (his blog is Don't Panic) for publicizing this!  Anyway: I've included the videos so that you can see her presentation style.  Should you want to see the transcript, I've included it in a separate document here.
