Influenza not taking year off, again! - 3 flu strains in Iowa
|Iowa is below Minnesota, to the left of Illinois with a large nose|
and small mouth; most consider it the most handsome state.
I also thought that moving to Iowa would limit my exposure to these sorts of transmissible pathogens. It's not like I see people most days; ain't nobody here but us chickens. I even thought Dan was joking about measles and mumps. We have vaccines, we can't possibly have measles and mumps around here! Apart from what people say, I really do think wishful thinking can prevent influenza if we wish REALLY really hard. If even one of us gives up hope - bam, pandemic.
