It's Flu Map Time!

Beginning in October, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention begins updating U.S. flu activity information on its Influenza web section. These updates include the much-loved weekly U.S. flu map, which graphically tracks the spread of flu across the nation. Those of us who are data and epidemiology geeks will be anxiously awaiting updates each week for months, holding our breaths waiting to exclaim, "One of 'em turned red!"

Key Facts About the Flu Vaccine

Technorati Tags: ; ; ;
MeSH Tags: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.); Influenza, Human [note to the indexers - I think it's good that you split the tags into Human Influenza and Avian Influenza, but I think it's a little misleading, because I'm still getting Avian in my Human search results. And chocolate in my peanut butter. Most people, at a glance, are going to think you did this so Influenza, Human excludes bird flu strains, which it doesn't.]
