Happy National Influenza Vaccination Week!
Don’t worry, the action items for this week are easier to do than it is to say!
- Get both H1N1 and seasonal flu vaccine. Find the nearest one in the flu locator
- Send an ecard to a loved one to encourage them to get vaccinated
The H1N1 (swine) flu virus is still prevalent across the nation and the American Red Cross encourages everyone to get vaccinated against the virus, now that the vaccine is widely available.
“The H1N1 flu continues to be a health threat, so this is no time to be complacent,” said Sharon Stanley, chief nurse and director, Red Cross Disaster Health and Mental Health Services. “The supply for the vaccine is no longer an issue, and we don’t know whether another wave of H1N1 will occur. The best way to protect yourself and your loved ones is by being vaccinated.”Advertisements
