    of complications from influenza, serious consideration must be given to travel during peak season when unvaccinated. There is no question that the risk of acquiring influenza increases with air travel, especially due to the necessity of having to spend such significant amount of time on both ends in those cesspools of human disease we otherwise refer to as airports.

    If she were my relative, with health being as you've described, I'd advise against international travel until she's received her full complement of influenza vaccinations.

    Now are the days we've been working for.

      Thanks for telling me what I wanted to hear. I realize the chances for her getting it are probably small, but if she did get it, and there is enough of it going around that the government is talking about delaying the start of school, she would get very sick. I like her and don't want to see her end up in hospital.
