Swine Flu is concentrated in the rural areas, while dwindling in the cities

The latest on this is that New York City has rescinded the demand that health care workers get mandatory H1N1 vaccinations. Also that in the larger cities the percentage of new flu cases has dropped dramatically from the spring numbers, with increased cases in the rural parts of the US.
My reference point is Billings Montana's KULR8 News which maintains excellent coverage of the local happenings.

BILLINGS - Residents were turned away Monday afternoon as health officials ran out of the vaccine for the H1N1 virus.

Throngs of people poured into the Shrine Auditorium Monday at 1:00 p.m. to get the H1N1 vaccination, but this was just the end of what had been a long day of waiting. The first people in line arrived at about 9:00 a.m.

  1. Being a free thinker, I have to apologise for the inclusion of fluscam.com, as it's so far left that it might be approaching the right. The most interesting part of the article is the clickable Flu Map which shows the distribution of flu cases throughout the US. It sure doesn't look very good for the Northwest and California...G:
