Prevention measures

The 2009 influenza A (H1N1) pandemic site is no longer being updated. However, updated pandemic 2009 evaluations are available on the influenza pandemic preparedness site, together with the summaries of the pandemic.

The 2009 influenza A(H1N1) pandemic was declared over in August 2010 by the World Health Organization. Europe has now entered a new inter-pandemic phase of seasonal influenza. For updated information, see the seasonal influenza site. For information regarding pandemic preparedness, including post-pandemic plans, see the influenza pandemic preparedness site.

With increasing numbers of confirmed cases being reported by European countries, ECDC has been working with the European Commission and its partners in the Member States to prepare some simple advice for EU citizens on how they can help to protect themselves and others from becoming infected with the influenza virus A(H1N1)v.
