Dear Commissioners, School Board Members, Mr. Herr, Dr. McKinzie and County School & Emergency Management Staff,
The Federal Health & Human Services Department (HHS) and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) have advised public health agencies across the nation to begin planning for a national H1N1 vaccination campaign this fall. In addition, local health departments will continue surveillance and response efforts that have been in place since April when the new flu virus was first discovered.
Although this new flu virus has caused mild illnesses, it may strengthen or become more widespread in the fall of this year. Thus far we have confirmed over 3 dozen cases with no large clusters. Other parts of Florida are still dealing with sporadic clusters and rare severe illness in those with asthma, heart disease or other chronic condition. But for our planning purposes, even "mild flu" can keep people out of work or school for days while seriously sickening those with chronic disease. Absenteeism in large numbers could impact daily operations of many enterprises such as hospitals, schools, government, and other businesses. Community reactions to perceived risks can also impact these same entities.

I really wish there was an accountability procedure on ATS, but as we all know very well, there isn't and I know when this doesn't come to pass, you'll just start another "you life is in danger" thread and have hundreds more flags.
I am not sure why someone who has does zero research and has no idea of what he is talking about is getting so many stars...
ATS is becoming a joke.. seriously. You guys just ignore all reason, truth and reality so long as it fits your personal paranoid agenda.
