Pandemic Flu

Are we as Nurses prepared for a pandemic flu? If an influenza pandemic occurs, there could be millions of deaths with catastrophic economic outcomes. Please discuss how we are readying ourselves to care for the aged and infirm, contemplating vaccine shortages, questioning our own personal decisions to take the vaccine, and staying abreast of updates as they arrive.
