2009 H1N1 (Swine) Flu Virus

 

Background

FDA is working to address human infection with the 2009 H1N1 flu virus as part of a team led by the Department of Health and Human Services.  

FDA is responding to this threat by:

  • working with other government agencies and manufacturers on a series of issues related to antiviral medications
  • growing the 2009 H1N1 flu virus and preparing to make vaccine seed lots, which may be used eventually to produce a safe and effective vaccine
  • helping to prepare reagents needed for vaccine production and coordinating closely with other public health agencies for clinical development and testing
  • accelerating access to new diagnostic tools for this 2009 H1N1 flu virus


To provide the latest information, FDA will update this Web page regularly.  For all federal flu information, visit www.flu.gov
