Swine Flu, Where Art Thou?

The CDC is reporting that the prevalence of swine flu infection started really falling off here in the states in October. As one will recall, the H1N1 vaccine was not readily available then so the fall off in swiney occurred apart from the vaccine. This attests to the drop off in the virulency of the virus itself, and to a much lesser degree, to whatever measures we've taken to protect ourselves either naturally or vaccinatingly.

It would be interesting for data to be collected/reported on the infection rate in the vaccinated versus unvaccinated population in November and the first two weeks of December so people could educate themselves before getting the vaccine in early 2010. This represents good science though so it's not likely to be a top story any time soon.
