Dear DOH Employees:
In a continued effort to provide you with the most up-to-date H1N1 Swine Flu information, we will send a weekly bulletin each Thursday.
Fighting H1N1 swine flu is a three-step approach: 1) get a vaccination when it becomes available, 2) practice everyday prevention (including frequent hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes and staying home when sick), and 3) use antiviral drugs correctly if your health professional recommends them.
The H1N1 flu vaccine is voluntary and initial shipments are expected to arrive by mid-October. The initial shipments of vaccine will be small, so priority for vaccination will be given to individuals who are in the designated priority groups. Information about the vaccine and priority groups can be found on the website below. Clinical trials indicate healthy adults will likely require only one dose of the vaccine.
The Florida DOH website - www.myflusafety.com... - has many resources, including a fact sheet on what DOH is doing to respond to the H1N1 flu (under the General Information section) and protective measures for the workplace (under the Community & Workplace section).
The Florida Flu Information Line (1-877-352-3581) is an automated line that can answer general questions about H1N1. Callers also have the option to speak with an operator, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week.
It is important for county health departments (CHDs) that receive calls from local residents to triage those calls internally, as they are most knowledgeable about local vaccination plans and H1N1 flu management. CHDs should refer only general questions to the H1N1 flu line.
Health care providers, who want to partner with DOH to administer the H1N1 vaccine, should be referred to the Florida SHOTS system where they can pre-register on-line at: www.flshots.com...
