Human memory, if not prompted and refreshed, is short. The Swine Flu "epidemic" is some years ago now, and it has largely been forgotten. But it's definitely not been forgotten by young Lucas and his mother, see: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-24181313. Remember that vaccine? The one we were assured was safe? I was careful not to get vaccinated myself despite the hospital putting every pressure on staff to do it, short of making it absolutely compulsory (although it might become so soon). Either way it doesn't matter to the manufacturers; they've made their billions. All they have to do is wait for the next "pandemic", Flamingo Flu perhaps. Almost everybody got some reaction to the jab. My own brother was sicker from the vaccine than I was from catching Swine Flu, but it looks like he got off lucky; he at least doesn't have narcolepsy.
