Flu season is just around the corner. The New Hanover County Health Department, and the county school system, teamed up Tuesday night at Eaton Elementary School for the first of three flu awareness forums.

The health department handed out information about the flu shot. While flu season is not yet here, the vaccine is currently available at the health department, pharmacies and medical providers.

Meanwhile, the H1N1 vaccine is currently not available. It will likely be out in mid to late October. At the meeting, health care specialists spread the word about how not to spread germs.

“When you’re sick – stay at home. Keep yourself separated from people you know to be ill or sick. And again just take care of your health. Eat healthy and get as much exercise as you can,” said Eric Ireland New Hanover County Deputy Health Director.

And, of course, wash your hands after you cough or sneeze.

The second flu forum is at Gregory Tuesday night. The final flu forum will be held at Anderson Elementary on the 29th.

Both forums will run from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

NC education leaders meet with Perdue

RALEIGH — The top education leaders in North Carolina are meeting with Gov. Beverly Perdue for the first time since a state budget passed that required painful belt-tightening.

Perdue scheduled a meeting of the North Carolina Education Cabinet on Wednesday in Durham. The cabinet includes state schools Superintendent June Atkinson, State Board of Education Chairman Bill Harrison, UNC system President Erskine Bowles and community colleges chief Scott Ralls.

The General Assembly approved a budget signed by Perdue last month that required local school districts and UNC to find about $300 million in spending reductions this fiscal year. Less money means layoffs on some campuses and larger class sizes elsewhere.

Perdue has tried to revive the Education Cabinet, designed to provide better cooperation throughout public education.
