With the coming of winter also comes the threat of the flu. Each year health departments try to predict the type of influenza virus will spread across the globe and prepare a vaccine to prevent the spread of the disease.

However there is always a chance that the vaccine will not provide the protection needed. If that happens, a pandemic could result. To assist healthcare providers in taking steps to prepare for an influenza pandemic, this free checklist was developed by the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA) in conjunction with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Who knows what will happen this winter but hopefully this resource will help you prepare for it.
