Exclamation NK Deficiency and H1N1

I am a 24 year old college student and have recently developed a NK cell deficiency secondary to hyperprolactinemia. My college is small and has just said that there are 8 cases of H1N1 now among students. I'm reading in the newspaper about healthy college students in my city dying from H1N1. Here I am deficient in NK cells and I have no idea what to do. I didn't go to school today and tried to get in touch with my immunologist but wasn't able to. I'm going to have to go to school tomorrow because I have a midterm to take but I'm going to keep trying to contact him. Someone told me that even once I get the H1N1 immunization it isn't effective right away. I used to work in hospitals and I am very aware of how to wash hand properly and how to prevent the spread of germs and how to minimize risk of infection but I'm still scared of catching this. This immune defficiency thing is new for me and I seem to be catching every "bug" that is going around. Is there anyone else dealing with this type of situation? Are you going to classes? Any suggestions from anyone?
