As the flu situation throughout the state continues to change more and more rapidly, we will be posting to this blog more frequently in order to continue to share the most up to date and key information with all residents of the Commonwealth. While we encourage everyone to continue their spirited dialogue around the H1N1 virus in the comments section, DPH will no longer be able to respond to specific questions and comments.

 

We thank you for your continued patience and we remain committed to our pledge to keep you updated on this blog as the situation evolves.
