Influenza 2008-2009

October 27, 2008

10/27/2008  Well, it is influenza time again.  For a general discussion and the usual recommendations, please see my article

For the weekly report from the Centers for Disease Control, click here.  Their report is usually about a week behind, owing to the logistics of data collection.

At the moment, most states are not reporting any influenza activity, but interestingly enough, Connecticut is one of the few that is reporting “sporadic” cases.  Accordingly, prophylaxis with Influenzinum may be started at this time.
