Crist says Vaccines, Common Sense Should Ward Off Flu

October 13th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

The first H1N1 vaccines began arriving in Florida last week. Governor Charlie Crist was briefed by Surgeon General Ana Viamonte Ros that more is on the way quickly. The Governor says people should rely on common sense.

I think that were getting about 100,000 vaccines that started coming in on Friday. Thats good news,” Crist said. ” [Dr.Viamonte Ros] informs me well have probably 3 million by the end of the month, which is great. I think that the common sense approach is what weve talked about from the outset. That is, if you feel sick stay home. If you have to cough or sneeze, do so into your sleeve, you know, not into your hands. And to wash your hands periodically. And continue to apply those common sense rules.

People are also being reminded to get not only H1N1 vaccine, but seasonal flu shots as well.
