Swine flu is pretty prominent in Plano. The year it first made the news, both of my daughters and I caught it. This year, my older daughter caught it again in April, and my husband caught it a few weeks ago. It's not nearly as bad as regular flu, though. The symptoms are less intense (to where you don't really know you have the flu--unlike the other strains where the body ache is unmistakable), and you can get over it MUCH faster than with other strains of flu. But the flu shots don't prevent it.
