Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has encouraged Chapters to share the Antiviral Drug Supply page due to reported manufacturer delays in filling antiviral medication orders.

According to an article in the March AAP News, 114 influenza-associated pediatric deaths have been reported to the CDC. Flu activity is expected to continue for several weeks and clinicians who suspect influenza in children with increased risk of complications should begin antiviral treatment immediately.

See the AAP Red Book Online Influenza Resource page for additional information.
