Across the country, health officials are reporting more cases of both seasonal flu and the H1N1 swine flu. Tonight we'll give you the facts you need to stay healthy. A doctor will be in the studio to answer your questions.  Click here to submit your questions.

There's another twist to the flu fight. Tests confirm a pig in Minnesota is the first in the U.S. to get swine flu. But officials stress there's no danger to humans. We'll dig deeper into that part of the story.

Also tonight, see how women and men compare in the work place. The raw data might surprise you. For example, new research shows 40 percent of women are now the primary earner in their home. That's because three-quarters of the jobs lost in the recession were held by men. All this comes with more responsibility for women. We'll have the numbers.

Join us for these stories and more starting at 10pm ET. See you then!

    Who even knows that the seasonal flu vacine is not available!! I can find no one in Illinois that has the vacine and the Illinois health dept does no even know if they are getting more of the vacine. No one on TV has even mentioned anything about the shortage of the SEASONAL flu vacine! The vacine was available for the first two weeks in October, then NONE!

    I find it very irresponsible to vaccinate the population with a life vaccine.

    I'm not surprised by the women being the breadwinner in a lot of families – I was for many years in mine. I don't know about more male jobs being lost in the recession than female – on the white collar side it seemed pretty even to us. Looking forward to tonight.
