Producing vaccines is going to take months. Like until September. There's just no way to make the stuff sooner, even though yes, a vaccine does provide the greatest protection against the disease.

The initial panic is definitely for naught. But even with the extremely low lethality of the flu (compare the 2% mortality of the flu with the mortality of ebola or AIDS), if 100 million people catch it, we're talking about a lot of deaths.

The news outlets are overplaying it, but the public is also overdoing it. I have a co-worker who's just about ready to buy 30 days of rations and camp out at her house until August. Right now. When there are no confirmed cases in Washington state yet, and maybe 50 in the US...
