H1N1 UPDATE - MARCH 18, 2010

Case Counts: For the period of March 7-13, no cases of H1N1 virus were confirmed by Delaware's Division of Public Health (DPH) lab. One case is being reported for the previous week due to the lag time between when a specimen was collected and when the positive test result was available. This case was hospitalized and released. There were no hospitalizations from H1N1 during the week of March 7-13, and Delaware's influenza activity status remains sporadic. There were 11 reports of influenza-like illness from DPH's network of sentinel providers from March 7-13, with four influenza-like illnesses the previous week. The total number of confirmed H1N1 cases since Oct. 4 is now 1,976.

School Vaccinations: School vaccinations were completed March 8.

Pharmacies Providing Free H1N1 Vaccine: DPH continues to subsidize the cost of H1N1 vaccine so that participating Delaware pharmacies can offer the shot free of charge to anyone age 18 or older. DPH officials urge all Delawareans to get vaccinated. Pharmacies currently offering free H1N1 shots are:
