Updated Technical Report on Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza A(H5N1) Viruses

CDC has posted an updated H5N1 bird flu technical report summarizing the situation globally and domestically and assessing the public health risk. This updated report incorporates information on more recent sporadic human infections and activity in wild birds, poultry and other animals. The report concludes that the current risk to the U.S. public has not changed and remains low at this time.

Children Can Get a Flu Vaccine in July/August

For children who need only one dose of flu vaccine for the season, Sept and Oct are generally good times to get a flu vaccine. However, children who need two doses of flu vaccine should get their first dose as soon as vaccine becomes available. Additionally, children who have health care visits during July or Aug can get a flu vaccine at that time if they might not return for vaccination later.
