LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Federal Government has unveiled its strongest tool in the fight against swine flu, Elmo. This Sesame Street character and his human friend Gordon are featured in the new Public Service Announcements from the Department of Health and Human Services.

The ad tells children to wash their hands frequently and instead of covering their face when they cough or sneeze, they're encouraged to blow their germs into the crook of their arm. This is all just part of the nationwide defense against this swine flu season.
