King County offers Flu Preparedness Comic Book to residents

comicbannerWe’ve all heard by now that H1N1 (also known as “swine flu”) is out to get us. Experts continue to predict a severe pandemic and want everyone ot be prepared ahead of time.

King County’s helping out local citizens by offering a guide to dealing with a flu pandemic in helpful graphic format. No Ordinary Flu is available for free download on the King County Public health website in English, Spanish and a variety of other languages commonly used in King County. If you’d rather have a print copy, you can order one to be mailed to you for free at the same site, but only if you live in King County.

If you live outside King County but within Washington state, you can order the English or Spanish version from the Washington Department of Health. If you live outside the state, or if you’re a Washingtonian wanting the book in another language besides English and Spanish, you can get it from the health organization NACCHO, but beware that quantities are limited.

King County Public Health has an entire page of flu advice relevant both to H1N1 and to the more ordinary sort of flu which so far actually kills way more people each year.

    Why on earth are they pushing this? Baxter H1N1 is LESS harmful then last year’s flu but has displaced it entirely, so no vaccines are indicated this year.
