RICHMOND, Va — As swine flu continues to spread around the nation, Virginia Commonwealth University and the Health Preparedness Committee are meeting to make plans should swine flu become a serious problem. Among those included in the meeting are VCU Student Health Services, Residence Life, Dining Services, and News Services.

Director of the Wellness Resource Center for the VCU campuses, Linda Hancock, says they are planning for possible outbreaks of illness in addition to prevention.

“If you have any chronic illnesses talk to your doctor now so you know exactly what you need to do to be in the best possible health,” says Hancock.

VCU will distribute H1N1 vaccines as well as seasonal flu vaccines. They are due in mid October.
