New year, new month...NEW COUNTRY OF THE MONTH! Thanks for learning about Thailand with us last month and we hope you are as excited as we are about our next featured country for January...NEW ZEALAND!
January also has much more in store for you: National Influenza Week. (yes it was originally scheduled for December 6-10, 2009, but it was rescheduled to Jan 10-16, 2010 due to the lack of vaccine available).
2009 was a scary/groundbreaking year for flu. H1N1 or Swine Flu made BIG news. While influenza is unpredictable, and while we do not know the likelihood of a future wave of H1N1 influenza, we do know that if more people are vaccinated, the disease is less likely to spread in the coming months.
Stay tuned for more flu news in the coming weeks and tomorrow...Let's plan a trip to New Zealand!
