A contagion of complacency is threatening to undermine the fight to contain the H1N1 influenza pandemic. The vaccine is the single most potent weapon against this dangerous pathogen, which is causing serious illness in children, young adults and pregnant women in Minnesota and elsewhere. Yet polls consistently show that Americans, who once clamored to get the shot, are recklessly putting their lives or their children's at risk by not getting the shot as the vaccine becomes more widely available. According to a recent CNN poll, more than half of American adults -- 55 percent -- said they do not plan to get the H1N1 shot.
