H1N1 Flu Virus Preparedness Guides Arrive in Toronto Mailboxes

The Public Health Agency of Canada has equipped Canada Post mail carriers with H1N1 flu virus literature, and it's being delivered to Toronto mailboxes today. Mine just arrived, and I had a chance to take a quick look at it.

The brochure is a concise summary of the most important information and facts about swine flu including: symptom recognition, severity indicators, tips on protecting yourself, and details about high risk groups. It also points us to much more information at www.fightflu.ca, where several more print-ready, information rich PDF downloads are available.

If you want hard copies of the detailed, multi-page guides and don't have a printer, call 1-800-O-Canada and arrange to have them mailed to you.

Similar information, and information on vaccination clinics in Toronto can also be found on the Toronto Public Health H1N1 flu virus web page.
