White House Teams Up With Olympic Athletes To Fight H1N1 Flu

Next month, the 2010 Olympic Winter Games will begin in Canada.
The world’s top athletes will gather in Vancouver, along with spectators from across the globe.
These Games inspire all Americans to be physically active and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
One immediate step that you can take to protect your health is to get your H1N1 flu vaccination. Olympians, Paralympians and hopefuls training for Vancouver are doing just that.
Today, athletes, coaches, and staff who are Vancouver bound are getting vaccinated against the H1N1 flu at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado and the 2010 U.S. Cross Country Championships in Anchorage, Alaska. We urge all Americans to do the same and get their H1N1 vaccine.
