You may not know this, but this isn't the first time there has been a Swine Flu scare. In the 1970's, Swine Flu appeared in the US. The government started up a program to get the country vaccinated for Swine Flu, but there were side affects that some people died from! The vaccination plan was scrapped.
Check out these retro Swine Flu ads that came out in the 1970's. They always say fashions come back into style every 20 to 30 years. I had no idea the illnesses were the same.
