Americans who have become hyper- aware of swine flu as the disease sweeps the globe are overwhelming doctors’ offices, clinics and U.S. drugstores for the seasonal-flu vaccine as well, leading to shortages.

The two influenza strains, with similar symptoms and outcomes, may circulate concurrently in the U.S. for the first time beginning this month, normally the official start of the flu season, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.
