The D.C. Department of Health is trying to educate the city's residents about H1N1 swine flu.

As part of its campaign to help residents prepare, the city has launched a new website. In a statement, the Department of Health's director, Dr. Pierre Vigilance, says it's a "one-stop resource" so people don't have to search far and wide for information on the H1N1 flu. It provides planning kits and checklists on flu preparedness for businesses and schools. It also has fact sheets in Spanish with other languages to follow soon.

The Health Department says it will include the latest information on the H1N1 vaccine as it becomes available.
