Stanton, CA (PRWEB) September 2, 2006
Avian Flu Talk website announces that all citizens need to prepare for possible pandemic with flu season approaching.
Experts have warned that a severe pandemic flu would create a disruption of many critical services. Deliveries such as for food, water and prescription medication would abruptly come to a halt and the general public could expect major shortages of all resources.
Along with buying extra food and water, the public is also urged to obtain a pneumonia vaccination known as the pneumococcal PPV23. A pneumonia vaccination has the ability to prevent the lethal secondary bacterial infection which can develop as a complication to the flu. The most common way to treat the secondary infection is with antibiotics, which would be in short supply during a pandemic. Obtaining a pneumonia vaccination ahead of time is thought to be more effective than using antibiotics to fight the pneumonia infection. Until the emergence of this new super-flu virus, such preventive measures were rarely discussed.
For more information on how to prepare for a possible flu pandemic, we would encourage all of those who have not already done so, to visit this online preparedness discussion forum located at http://www.Avianflutalk.com.
