Clinician Letters





  • Disease Regulations Update – November 16 **VDH would like to offer clarification to the November 16th, 2018 clinician letter. In that letter, it identified that “the requirement that physicians and directors of medical facilities report influenza by number of cases (report total number per week and by type of influenza, if known) has been removed from the regulations”. This statement was not accurate.  The only change regarding influenza reporting is that the list of conditions that shall be reported was modified to “Influenza, Confirmed”. 
  • Acute Flaccid Myelitis – November 8
