Thanks Beth for putting together a list of resources!

Katie Waterhouse

Beth, thank you so much for all of this helpful information and the great links! I wanted to add another important piece of information as well and that is that the health and safety of those affected by hurricane Ike directly is paramount, however the volunteers that are going into Ike's affected area are also still very much in harm's way. My request is simple: Volunteers, get vaccinated!

There are a few life saving vaccines that volunteers may need
especially if they come in contact with contaminated water, or if they are engaged in reconstruction or debris removal.

I work at Passport Health, a nationwide travel immunization clinic. We were first respondents during Katrina and we vaccinated those that were doing similar work to what Ike volunteers are going to do. The recommended vaccinations include:

* Hepatitis A & B
* Influenza
* Tetanus/Diptheria/Pertussis
* Typhoid for water exposure

For more information, please go to or read read our blog at

Thanks, Katie
