Thursday October 15th saw the official launch of Virginia’s H1N1 and Seasonal Flu immunization campaign. The ‘H1N1 its up to you to fight the flu’ campaign was launched at the Medical College of Virginia (MCV) by Health Commissioner Dr Karen Remley. On hand to represent EMS workers from across the State was Richmond Ambulances Lt Veronica ‘Ronnie’ Ruffin. Ronnie received one of the first inoculations in front of TV and press cameras as part of the campaign. To link to the VDH H1N1 website follow: http://www.h1n1get1.com/.
