i Aug 28th

With National Preparedness Month coming up in September, there is such an importance of preparing in advance for seasonal influenza and potential outbreaks.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have collaborated to produce a new influenza prevention and control handout. This handout includes information on the symptoms of influenza, how influenza is spread, the benefits of the influenza vaccine, and much more. Please encourage Head Start and other early education and child care providers to review this handout and take steps to prepare for the upcoming flu season.
