The Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment encourages Vincentians to continue to practice hand hygiene and cough etiquette in order to minimise the spread of viral illnesses.

Over the past forty-seven (47) epidemiological weeks, there have been no laboratory confirmed cases of Influenza A H1N1 (a respiratory viral illness now endemic to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines).

During the period under review, the number of persons reporting fever and respiratory symptoms generally remained at expected levels, with two recent deviations from the norm recorded in epidemiological week 42 and 47, 2019.

To decrease your chances of contracting or spreading this virus, it is important to practice good hand-washing and other hygienic practices. The flu vaccine is not available within the public health care sector, but can be accessed in the private sector.

If you require additional information regarding Influenza A H1N1, please contact your nearest health care facility or physician.
