Booklet in eight languages teaches influenza home care

Filed Under

This booklet is part of a statewide educational campaign that Massachusetts launched in the fall of 2007. These materials are particularly useful in the context of the novel H1N1 flu pandemic, because they provide the public with the information to care for sick family members at home during an influenza pandemic. The booklet is available in nine languages and in both a basic literacy version and a comprehensive version. Topics covered include flu vaccines and antivirals, symptoms and how to treat them, a supply list, caring for the caregiver, and when to call a doctor.
