Flu season information online

The public now can go online to get the latest information on the flu in King County. Flu season in this area normally begins in January or February.
   Production delays have caused late delivery of about half of the area's shipments of vaccine this year. Despite the delays, many health care providers in King County have some supply now, and full supply should be available by the end of December.
   The new Flu Season Update Web page located at http://www.metrokc.gov/health gives the public and health care providers regularly updated information on influenza surveillance in King County as well as updates on the availability of influenza vaccine at Public Health clinics.

   here will be links to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's surveillance data as well .
