PANDEMIC INFLUENZA PREPAREDNESS

 

H1N1 flu

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the recent outbreak of Novel Influenza A H1N1 as a pandemic. While the severity of the illness (ie, how sick people get) is not as great as first feared, the virus is novel -- meaning we have never experienced it before and therefore have no immunity to protect us from getting ill.

The Utah County Health Department has implemented plans that were developed to deal with such an outbreak. Education is a primary goal at this point, as no vaccine is available (another major tool in the public health arsenal to combat contagious disease). The UCHD is also developing further tactics if this virus becomes more virulent, as well as relationships with local health partners if wide-spread outbreak were to take place.

This website provides a resource for information, checklists for preparedness and facts to dispel rumors and myths. By working together with the community, we at the Utah County Health Department wants to be sure Utah County and its citizens can weather this outbreak with the least amount of disruption possible.
