Influenza Surveillance Activities in New Brunswick

Influenza surveillance occurs worldwide.

In New Brunswick and in Canada, public health officials, laboratories, and health care professionals work together to monitor influenza activity. They report influenza-like illness (ILI), lab confirmed influenza, and outbreaks.

  1. detect new influenza viruses
  2. the composition of the flu vaccine for the following influenza season
  3. determine resistance to antiviral drugs.
