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

ut any reactions to the vaccine with the Texas Department of State Health Services. With the help of their colleagues in El Paso at the West Texas Regional Poison Center as well as other Spanish- speaking specialists in the state, the Texas Poison Center Network provides all of their services in both English and Spanish.
  • The Northern New England Poison Center has been helping field calls about the virus after hours to support the state health department. That center is also helping manage Maine's antiviral and personal protective equipment stockpiles.
  • The Illinois Poison Center became the latest poison center to start fielding H1N1 calls, partnering with the Illinois Department of Public Health to staff the state hotline beginning Tuesday, Oct. 27.
  • "Poison centers are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week with medical professionals who are ready to serve the health care needs of individuals seeking assistance," said Jim Hirt, executive director of the American Association of Poison Control Centers. "It's a natural fit for already-established poison centers and their infrastructure to answer calls from concerned citizens in this fight against the H1N1 flu pandemic."

    The American Association of Poison Control Centers supports the nation's poison control centers in their efforts to prevent poisoning. Poison centers offer free and confidential services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

    For questions about potential poisons, call your local poison control center at 1 (800) 222-1222.
