Europe Takes a Stance

As summer come to a close, as employees return to work, and kids get ready to go back to school, the European nations are preparing their countries for the worst case scenarios.  Many governments are bracing their citizens for the worst, children may have to be home schooled, vaccinations may come up short, and businesses may experience a widespread absenteeism.

As of right now the government does not want to close schools before the year even starts, but they are preparing for the worst. School systems have incorporated flu classes into their curriculum so that children are just as aware as everyone else in the event that the flu spreads wide enough to affect millions.   

As of right now, health care systems have been able to handle the large volume of patients visiting doctors each day, but if the influx of patients continues to increase -- then they too may need extra hands to help administer flu shots this season.
