Weekly U.S. Influenza Surveillance Report

Flu activity continues to decline across the country. Annual flu vaccination is still recommended for everyone 6 months and older as long as flu activity is ongoing.

Two New Respiratory Disease Dashboards

CDC has posted two new data dashboards, called RESP-NET & NSSP: Emergency Department Patient Visit Data, that display combined data on flu, COVID-19, and RSV from different surveillance systems. These dashboards show combined and disease-specific hospitalization and emergency department data for these three viruses, as well as by age, so that people can track and compare disease trends weekly.

The graphic text reads: “Tennessee’s flu tracking showed the 2022-2023 season started early and had high rates of children’s hospitalizations. It isn’t too late for a flu vaccine. Children 6 months and older should receive a flu vaccine every year to prevent flu complications.”

New MMWR on Tennessee Epi-Aid
A field investigation of flu activity in Tennessee during Nov 2022 found children were particularly impacted. Children seeking outpatient care were twice as likely to test positive for flu as adults and were hospitalized with flu at rates that rivaled past high severity flu seasons. Everyone 6 months & older should get an annual flu vaccine and take everyday preventive actions to help prevent flu.
