Georgia has seen a recent increase in the number of persons being hospitalized with 2009 H1N1 influenza. We encourage clinicians to consider this diagnosis in patients experiencing influenza-like illnesses. We also encourage providers to continue vaccinating children and adults for this virus. Children 9 and under must receive 2 doses at least one month apart to be considered fully immunized.

Keeping in line with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Georgia will now be following the CDC policy to only report numbers of hospitalized cases and number of deaths, rather than individual case counts.
