Flu Meeting at WCCHC on May 16, 9am-noon

The Department of Health is conducting a research project on pandemic influenza. The project is called Vaccine: Surviving Hawaii’s Next Pandemic. The goal of the project is to involve the public in thoughtful discussion on the question of how to prioritize who should first get limited supplies of vaccine in the event of a pandemic.

A meeting is planned for Saturday, May 16 at the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, to invite leeward coast input.

The Department of Health is really trying to reach out to the public to hear their thoughts on this topic which will affect everyone if a pandemic ever occurs.
