CDC Study Reports Risk for Infection in People Exposed to H5N1-Infected Birds

A CDC study reports the results of following more than 4,000 people in the U.S. who were exposed to birds infected with H5N1 bird flu. Only one person (who reported fatigue and no other symptoms) tested positive for H5N1. These findings support the current public health risk assessment for the U.S., which is considered low. CDC continues to monitor for bird flu infections in people.

During the 2022-2023 #flu season, adults who got a flu vaccine were less likely to have a serious flu-related complication compared to adults who did not get a flu vaccine. Getting a yearly flu vaccine is the best way to reduce your risk from flu. https://bit.ly/2vI4FNs
