H1N1 Update - West Virginia Hospital Association by chenleihor


									                                     Influenza Update
                                      March 17, 2010

Epidemiology and Lab:
West Virginia is reporting influenza activity as “Sporadic” for MMWR week 10 (ending
Saturday, March 13th, 2010).

There were 1658 cases of influenza-like illness (ILI) reported during MMWR week 10.
Sentinel providers reported 2.1 % of visits were ILI. This is slightly less than the
baseline of 2.4%.

There were 2 positive tests for influenza A and no positive tests for influenza B reported
by hospital and referral laboratories. Only PCR, immunofluorescence and culture results
are counted in these totals. At the Office of Laboratory Services 1 (100%) of 1 positive
tests for influenza A were influenza A 2009 (H1N1).

A total of 21 hospitals reported 2 influenza-related hospitalizations and no deaths during
MMWR week 10. A total of 926 hospitalizations and 22 deaths have been reported
since week 35.

There were NO active influenza outbreaks.

Please note that during times of low influenza activity, the positive predictive value of a
rapid test is extremely low. If clinically indicated, providers should consider confirming a
positive rapid test result with culture or PCR.

Up to date information can be found at the website:
Attached is a memorandum sent out earlier this week related to the storage and
disposal of unused H1N1 vaccine. Also attached is a list of hazardous waste haulers.

      Please be aware that due to upcoming expiration, CDC has blocked the following
       doses from ordering: MedImmune Product (NDC# 66019-0200-10). All four (4)
       depots are affected and grantees will see a decrease in allocation for this product
       in their Grantee Allocation Report. If you have any questions, please send an e-
       mail to H1N1VacDistribution@cdc.gov.
   CDC Director Frieden sent a letter to state health officers on March 4, 2010, in
    which he discusses the substantial immunity to 2009 H1N1 due to illness or
    immunization, particularly among children, which reduces the likelihood of
    outbreaks of H1N1 disease at this time. However, flu activity has occurred in
    waves during past pandemics and additional smaller waves or localized
    outbreaks are still possible.

    Dr. Frieden describes the H1N1 vaccination initiative as a remarkable success,
    with approximately 37% of children and 23% of adults vaccinated. He also urges
    state health officers to remain vigilant to detect changes in influenza activity, and
    continue testing for all hospitalized and severely ill patients and reporting of all
    pediatric deaths associated with laboratory-confirmed influenza.

    The letter also encourages vaccine to continue to be made available through
    provider offices, retail settings, and health departments and for state health
    officers to determine how best to promote H1N1 vaccination. The CDC also
    recommends that state health departments request that retailers, pharmacies,
    and health care providers retain their unexpired H1N1 vaccine supplies as a
    reserve should demand for vaccination increase before seasonal vaccine
    becomes available.
