Abdul Rao Initiated H1N1 Influence Virus Vaccination Program

Dr. Abdul Rao aims to create awareness among the people against this deadly disease.

Orlando, FL, August 20, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Health of North America collaborated with the FloridaSHOTS to initiate a 2009 H1N1 Influence virus vaccination program in all six affiliated campuses in Florida. The residents in Broward, Hillsborough, Marion, Orange and adjoining counties availed this opportunity and got vaccinated against 2009 H1N1 Influenza virus.

Dr. Abdul Rao exclaimed, "Given the urgency of this matter and the endemic nature of this disease, the Institute mobilized a rather expansive infrastructure to effectively implement this program."

Infection from 2009 H1N1 Influenza virus remains a serious threat in the U.S. with over 10,000 patients dying from the complications of this endemic disease in 2009.

The Institute of Women's Health of North America is working very closely with the relevant county health departments and community-based organizations to continue to enhance the outreach and effectiveness of this vaccination program. Hundreds of vaccines are still available at the Institute's affiliated campuses and the vaccination is offered on a walk-in basis to all men, women and children over the age of four (4) years. For the convenience of the people, evening and weekend hours are also available. Very knowledgeable staff at each affiliated campus is available to provide any clarification that people may need to make an informed decision.
