As we continue to monitor the H1N1 Inluenza (Swine Flu) this fall, we wanted to make sure that you had easy access to several useful government websites on the topic. 

The United States Department of Health (DOH) has established a call center to answer questions concerning seasonal and H1N1 influenza vaccination requirements.

The call center number is (800) 808-1987. Callers are directed to press #1 if they are from the public and have questions related to H1N1 or press #2 if they are health care providers with questions related to seasonal influenza and H1N1 vaccination requirements.

Here is a link to the New York State Department of Health's page on H1N1:
