The Pandemic Flu and You education packet includes basic, colorfully branded information on personal and school preparedness for pandemic influenza. The documents were distributed to the public through several government programs, including Medicaid, the Division of Motor Vehicles, and Children's Health Insurance Program. The primer and brochure are good examples of basic educational resources, and the disaster plan can be coupled with the first aid kit to guide preparedness activities. Several of the materials build on federal checklists while including content that was produced by the state. One reviewer mentioned that he found the technical information included in this packet to be accurate, informative, and understandable at the appropriate level. Although state and local jurisdictions may want to create and customize their own educational packets relative to the population's needs, the combination of federal and state resources in this packet provide a foundation for basic pandemic education.
