Pandemic, seasonal flu, H1N1—what do they all mean? This Science Café will attempt to shed light on the definition and process of declaring a disease a pandemic. Discussion will include:

  • The difference between seasonal influenza and H1N1 influenza.
  • An update on the numbers of suspected cases.
  • Where we are at with the H1N1 vaccine?
  • The Marion County response.
