Here's a useful overview of how things look in different parts of the nation (and follow the links to the American College Health Association data). The injectable version of the vaccine just became available in Chicago yesterday (for high-risk groups, including children--mine all got it [by luck, we had a doctor's appointment yesterday]). Probably in the next few weeks it will become widely available on college campuses. Since law students are probably less likely to live in dormitory settings, law schools may not prove quite the same breeding ground for this as other parts of campus. And for those interested in sober and intelligent analysis of issues related to influenza and vaccines (among other topics), I strongly recommend this blog written by public health professionals.
