Pandemic Influenza

In conjunction with the Chemung County Emergency Preparedness Committee, the Chemung County Health Department has been busy preparing plans for responding to Pandemic Influenza.  Important information relative to Pandemic Flu will be provided on this page as it becomes available.

One area of planning for a pandemic is a plan to provide vaccinations or medications to the entire county population in a short period of time with little advance notice.  A plan has been developed and an exercise was recently performed to test the plan.  To learn more information about the recent vaccination exercise, click HERE.
