Government Shutdown: Day 2

In light of the ongoing federal government “shutdown,” allow me to provide a necessary and vital service for the American people.  I will pick and choose various agencies within the federal government that are claiming that they will not be able to perform some of their duties until full funding levels are restored.

The Center for Disease Control, headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, is responsible for keeping a weather eye on the horizon for infectious diseases. According to the CDC website, their mission is as follows.

CDC works 24/7 to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same.

CDC increases the health security of our nation. As the nation’s health protection agency, CDC saves lives and protects people from health threats. To accomplish our mission, CDC conducts critical science and provides health information that protects our nation against expensive and dangerous health threats, and responds when these arise.

According to the news this morning, the CDC is not going to be able to track the fall and winter influenza strains that are expected every year.  So in light of the continuing government shutdown, please follow these basic guidelines to protect you and your family from the calamity that is THE FLU.

  1. Get a flu shot (offered at such hard to find places as Walgreens, your doctor’s office, and most health clinics).
  2. Wash your hands regularly and especially before you touch food, your mouth, eyes, or nose.
  3. Eat smart – fruits, vegetables, especially those containing Vitamin C and Zinc.
  4. Exercise regularly.
  5. Don’t cut back on sleep.

Amazing stuff really.  It’s a shame that the government isn’t fully funded in order to tell us such vital information to prevent an annual occurrence.
