Crist Asks Parents to Prepare for Swine Flu

August 11th, 2009 by flanews

More than 40 Floridians have died from swine flu since the first case was confirmed May 1st.

Florida has 3,320 confirmed cases. Health experts worry the virus will spread more rapidly once school starts. Governor Charlie Crist is asking parents to get their kids prepared because the first day of school is just around the corner.

I think it is important to remind our fellow Floridians that there is an awful lot of cases now of swine flu in the sunshine state. Its important that if you think your child is sick, they are showing symptoms, keep them at home. Be attentive and as we are entering the school year we are doing everything we can in terms of precaution to keep swine flu down, said Crist.

The state is still working out the details of its swine flu vaccination plan. The vaccine is expected to be ready in large quantity by October.
