Get Email Updates:Subscribe to OSDH E-Updates 

The purpose of the influenza statistics page is to provide summaries of influenza information obtained from the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) Acute Disease Service (ADS) influenza sentinel surveillance system and influenza test results from the OSDH Public Health Laboratory (PHL).  As of October 9, 2014, OSDH began producing a weekly report, and updated influenza statistics are posted each Thursday by 10:00 a.m. during the 2014-2015 flu season.

The ADS reports the first two confirmed cases of influenza in Oklahoma this week:

    1)  A non-hospitalized case from Oklahoma County in a child less than 5 years of age tested positive for influenza B, and

    2)  A hospitalized case from Tulsa County in a child less than 5 years of age tested positive for influenza A H3.

No influenza-associated deaths have been confirmed by ADS to date.
