An Inside Look at H1N1 Vaccine Production

On Sunday, 60 Minutes ran a fairly in-depth story about H1N1 vaccine production, distribution, and safety. You can watch the entire story (embedded below) or segments of the story here. CBS News has a few companion resources linked to the story and video on their website. One of the companion resources is a parents' guide to prevention of H1N1 contraction and what to do if you suspect that your child has H1N1.

This video or portions of it could be used in a high school health class and or a current events course. The video may clear up some confusion that your students have about H1N1 vaccinations.

The webinar will cover topics including the US DOE's guidelines for H1N1 prevention as well as free and cost-effective ways to meet the US DOE's requirements. This could be a good webinar for school nurses as well as school administrators. You can register for the webinar here.

10 Good Videos About Flu Prevention

The US Department of Health and Human Services recently held a contest for people to create public service announcements about influenza prevention. The ten finalists have been selected and the voting for the top video is now open. You can see all ten of the finalist videos on Department of Health and Human Service's YouTube channel. I've embedded one of the videos below.

These videos about flu awareness are a great way to spread the message to students and parents about the things they can do to stay healthy and prevent the spread of illnesses in their schools.

I particularly like this video, the H1N1 rap.
