If you have questions about the seasonal or swine flus, the Pueblo City-County Health Department has set up a Public Health Flu Hotline to run through the flu season.
The hotline will be staffed by medical professionals and is for generally healthy individuals who are able to stay home and take care of themselves.
"The Public Health Flu Hotline is available to help answer questions, describe flu symptoms and relieve the incoming phone calls to doctor's offices and hospitals," said Dr. Christine Nevin-Woods, public health director at the Pueblo City-County Health Department.
The phone bank is scheduled to begin October 7, 2009 and continue through the end of the flu season; this could be as long as March of next year.
The phone number is 583-4440 and is staffed 10:00 am through 4:00 pm Monday through Friday.
