Abstract

The goal of this report is to aid U.S. states and localities in fulfilling the six influenza pandemic preparedness and response activities established in the National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza. Recommendations for each responsibility are based on the characteristics of the influenza virus, past pandemics, existing pandemic preparation strategies and interviews with local professionals. Recommendations are also made to the federal government based on the most susceptible states and localities for becoming a pandemic entry point.
