Medical Monday: Daily Blog Review

Everywhere you go, the most talked about subject these days is flu season. The added threat of H1N1 this winter has everyone buzzing, from top government leaders to kindergarten teachers.

The big question seems to be whether or not to vaccinate against both the seasonal flu and the H1N1, or Swine flu. You'll get a different answer from every person you survey, along with myriad reasons to support either decision.

There are many websites from official sources (i.e. government, healthcare, educational institutions) out there supplying information on the subject of H1N1. With a quick search you can find state statistics, prevention techniques, and vaccine updates.

I decided to highlight a blog today that is all about the flu. More specifically, this blog is all about colds and flu. (Any flu, not just Swine flu.)

The Cold/Flu Blog is supported by About.com and is written by Kristina Duda, RN.

Kristina has posted information that explains what H1N1 is, who is at risk, and what is happening with the vaccine. This post is a must-read and a great place to start reading.

Make note of the additional page tabs that highlight cold and flu symptoms, treatment, and prevention.

It is so important for all of us to be informed and educated when it comes to our health. Today's blog is just one of many. Remember to search trusted resources (like About.com) for reliable information.
