American Association of Poison Control Centers: Count U.S. Poison Centers Among First Responders in H1N1 Flu Pandemic
Date:10/28/2009

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The same reassuring voice on the telephone line when you fear you've had a poison emergency may be the same person answering your questions about the H1N1 flu pandemic.

The nation's 60 poison centers are among the first responders helping America respond to H1N1, with states putting their poison centers to work in a variety of ways.

The H1N1 hotline, which has its own toll free number, is available to the public, health care providers and local health departments.
  • The Kentucky Regional Poison Center has been running an H1N1 hotline for about three weeks. In the beginning, poison center staff fielded about 600 calls a day - one day they took 800 calls - but now they're receiving about 200 to 240 a day.
  • The Central Texas Poison Center as well as the five other poison centers that make up the Texas Poison Center Network are currently monitoring calls related to adverse reactions to the H1N1 vaccine. The Texas centers are sharing information abo
