Present Virus Vaccination Day April 20th 2002!
WHAT IS VIRUS VACCINATION DAY?
Virus Vaccination Day is a one-day community service
event devoted to helping New York City non-profits
protect themselves against prolific computer viruses.
Computer viruses, like their human counterparts, come in
all kinds of forms and degrees of malignancy, from less
harmful strains that insert the word "wazzu" into
Microsoft Word documents, to extremely harmful varieties
that can cause hard disks - or entire networks - to
crash. Specially-trained volunteers will install donated

computers. To round out the virus check-up, volunteers
will tutor agency staff in how to update their software
in the future, perform general computer maintenance, and
inventory their hardware and software for future
