Information for Health Professionals
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has seen a sudden increase in Acute Flaccid Myelitis (AFM) cases in 2016 and is issuing a call for heightened surveillance and increased awareness for clinicians. Please see our "AFM Summary" and "Frequently Asked Questions" documents for more information if you see children in a clinical setting.
For influenza information, health professionals should view the most current clinical guidance for the 2018-2019 influenza season at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The weekly CDC FluView providing an overview of flu surveillance and related information can be viewed at this page. More information about the flu season can also be found here, and transcripts of CDC media telebriefings are also available.
