A new Web site containing information on Type A H1N1 influenza has been launched. The site, managed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, contains information on the virus and helpful tips on planning and preparation for workers, schools and families.

In addition, the web site provides one-stop access to U.S. Government H1N1, avian and pandemic flu information.

The site is sponsoring a flu video contest which is open to all U.S. residents 14 and over. Create a video Public Service Announcement with the message of preventing or dealing with the flu, post it on YouTube, and you could win a $2,500 cash prize.
