60 Minutes - 1967 Swine Flu Neurological Disorders Comparison

Good, honest, old-fashioned reporting. Those days are largely gone now.

This is an old segment from CBS '60 Minutes' on the swine flu (also known as H1N1) & the vaccine that was developed to stop the pandemic.

Dr. Michael Hattwick  raised the flag about the potential links but it was ignored. Michael Hattwick, who ran the CDC's flu tracking center at the time, says while much of it was done looks unnecessary, in hindsight, at the time, it seemed courageous.  Dr. MICHAEL HATTWICK: There was always the fear of doing too little. I think this time, there'll be more fear about doing too much and that may be a lesson we learned from '76.
