    HINI Health Alert in Mexico

    The Ventanillas de Salud programs in the 50 Mexican Consulates in the US are receiving updates on outbreaks of H1N1. The Mexican Ministry of Health reports that influenza activity is increasing. Most of the flu viruses detected in Mexico are 2009 H1N1 flu viruses. While flu activity in the United States remains low, flu viruses are circulating, including 2009 H1N1 viruses, and increases in flu activity are expected over the coming weeks. This season’s influenza vaccine will protect against 2009 H1N1 viruses. Visit the cdc.gov/flu website for updates on H1N1.
