Stan Nowy Jork nakazał pracownikom swojej służby zdrowia zaszczepić się przeciw grypie H1N1.
Rozsądny krok, zważywszy, że, jak podaje CDC, epidemia narasta:
- Visits to doctors for influenza-like illness (ILI) continued to increase in the United States, and overall, are higher than levels expected for this time of the year.
- Total influenza hospitalization rates for laboratory-confirmed influenza are higher than expected for this time of year for adults and children. And for children 5-17 and adults 18-49 years of age, hospitalization rates from April – October 2009 exceed average flu season rates (for October through April).
- The proportion of deaths attributed to pneumonia and influenza (P&I) based on the 122 Cities Report has increased and now exceeds what is normally expected at this time of year. In addition, 19 flu-related pediatric deaths were reported this week; 16 of these deaths were confirmed 2009 H1N1 and 3 were unsubtyped influenza A and likely to be 2009 H1N1. A total of 76 laboratory confirmed 2009 H1N1 pediatric deaths have been reported to CDC since April.

Pielęgniarka Suzanne Field (i kilka innych osób) zwróciła się do sądu federalnego z pozwem o natychmiastowe zawieszenie nakazu szczepień.
Czekamy na pozew przeciwko nakazowi mycia rąk i zmieniania rękawiczek między pacjentami.
