To the Editor: As winter, and the flu season, approaches, I would like to propose some changes to flu prevention posters circulated by New South Wales Health. After living in the United States for some time, I grew accustomed to seeing numerous posters around Boston highlighting the risks of flu and how to prevent it spreading, especially during the pandemic (H1N1) 2009 influenza outbreak. This preventive measure is important, and this was emphasised at my daughter’s childcare centre where all the children and staff were encouraged to learn techniques of stopping the spread of flu and good hygiene.
