Traditional Chinese medicines are offering their treatments as an alternative to vaccinations and facial masks in an effort to combat H1N1, with Chinese officials announcing last week that the vaccination campaign against H1N1 is not proceeding as fast as it should be because people are needlessly worried about the safety of the vaccine. As a result, the campaign seems to be floundering as the country heads into winter ahead of the Lunar New Year holiday in February, when millions of people travel back to their home towns -- potentially taking flu with them.
