City Announces Strategy For Protecting New Yorkers During The Upcoming Flu Season

For the upcoming flu season, the City has established a strategy for protecting New Yorkers. It will include offering free flu mist and flu shots for H1N1 to elementary school students whose parents want them to receive it; encouraging New Yorkers to protect themselves and their loved ones by getting flu shots or flu mist for H1N1 and seasonal flu; helping people with influenza-like illness manage their symptoms and find care; working with hospitals to ensure the availability of expanded emergency room capacity if it is needed; and designating primary-care clinics as “flu centers” that can give flu shots, information and outpatient care. These commendations are the result of the work performed by 15 interagency working groups that have been meeting throughout the summer.
