Seasonal Flu-Associated Hospitalizations Report

Butler County saw one confirmed influenza-associated hospitalization for the MMWR week ending 02/19/2022. This is a total of twenty-four confirmed influenza-associated hospitalizations for the 2021-2022 influenza season thus far in Butler County.

It is important to keep in mind that influenza itself is not reportable; only influenza-related hospitalizations. Thus, surveillance on influenza and other respiratory illnesses is difficult to track on a local level.

The best way to prevent influenza infection is to get vaccinated.
