Current Situation

A pandemic is a global disease outbreak. It is determined by how the disease spreads, not how many deaths it causes.

The United States is not currently experiencing a flu pandemic. If a pandemic occurs, the federal government will work to identify the cause and create a vaccine. Flu.gov will provide updates on the steps the federal government is taking to address the pandemic.
