ECU Preparing For Swine Flu Cases

The swine flu pandemic is a reason so many public schools and universities are warning their students to practice good hygiene.

At East Carolina University, health officials are already seeing students with symptoms of the flu, and say they expect it to get worse by next week.

ECU's environmental health and public safety sent out e-mails to students and staff earlier this week, saying to not panic, but to be aware of symptoms and signs of the flu.

Health officials say since the H1N1 flu virus is the predominant strain of the virus, if someone comes down with fever, cough, chills or body aches, they most likely have the swine flu. Now the university is waiting for the vaccine, in order to supply to their student body.

Once the swine flu vaccine comes in, the university will contact students who are at high risk of the virus, since there will be a limited supply of it on the first go-around.

Do not take the shot, instead, increase your Vitamin D3 intake, wash your hands, start eating healthy, you will be fine. Remember, Rockafeller owns all these vaccine companies and he is on record for DEPOPLATION. Research it...
