is fast approaching
Flu time is here! Please be aware
that county health departments may get increased
calls over the coming weeks of community members
reporting flu. The first few weeks of February
is our usual time that schools and companies
call to report large flu absences. Hopefully, we
will have a mild season as we did last year.
Throughout the State, flu reports remain low.
Please be aware that individual flu cases are
not reportable to public health. We often like
to know when flu is in our area, just as an FYI,
but not because of regulatory reporting. The
state of Georgia utilizes Sentinel Physicians
and other means to collect flu data. Pediatric
influenza-associated deaths ARE reportable,
however, and should be reported to our Office of
Also remember, we
are continuing our H1N1 flu vaccination efforts
both at the health departments and in our
schools. We have vaccinated over 40,000 people
