Tamiflu isn't a vaccine, it's the medication you can take within 12-48 hours of developing flu symptoms to reduce the severity of the illness and hasten recovery time. If you're really and truly scared of the H1N1 vaccine and you have no other underlying health conditions, then I would say just remain vigilant about washing your hands, avoiding crowds, and not touching your face. If you start to come down with flu-like symptoms, *immediately* contact your doctor to get tested and (if the test is positive), take Tamiflu. You're so close to your due date that I think you could manage being extra-vigilant and make it through flu season okay.

Other than the advice about taking tamiflu I agree with the previous poster.

Also every report I have read has said it peaked at the end of October (before Halloween was the specific time I have read repeatedly).
