Topics Covered: Public Health Emergencies
 

Influenza activity in the United States is elevated and is expected to continue at elevated levels for several more weeks. Nationally, influenza B/Victoria viruses have been most common followed by influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 viruses. The predominant virus varies by region and age group. There has been low circulation of influenza A(H3N2) and influenza B/Yamagata viruses. Annual vaccination is the best way to prevent influenza. CDC continues to recommend everyone six months of age and older get vaccinated for influenza. CDC also recommends antiviral medications to treat influenza. Antiviral treatment has shown clinical and public health benefit in reducing illness and lessening severe outcomes of influenza based on evidence from randomized controlled trials, meta-analyses of randomized controlled trials, and observational studies during past influenza seasons and during the 2009 H1N1 pandemic.

During this COCA Call, clinicians will learn about current 2019-2020 influenza activity and CDC’s recommendations for healthcare providers, including influenza vaccination and the appropriate use of antiviral medications.
