Attention: Infection Preventionists, Laboratory Personnel and Others

Recently, questions about reporting of seasonal influenza cases have been raised and this document clarifies what is reportable.

This document provides guidance for the reporting of 2009 H1N1 and seasonal influenza cases, vaccine adverse events, and outbreaks to CDPHi. Information from previous CDPH documents and updates has been consolidated to provide one document that contains the most recent reporting guidelines and links to the necessary reporting forms.

PLEASE NOTE: Hospitalized and Fatal Seasonal Influenza Reporting requirements in the document. While most of the document addresses reporting for H1N1 cases and vaccine adverse events (expanded list), the State is also requesting reporting on SEASONAL hospital and fatal cases to the local health department.
