ABSTRACT

Oklahoma Pandemic Influenza Management Plan 2006   [open pdf - 1MB]

"The Oklahoma Pandemic Influenza Management Plan is intended to be a dynamic and interactive document. Following the release of the HHS Pandemic Influenza Plan by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in November 2005, the Pandemic Influenza Committee undertook the challenge to review and augment the Oklahoma Pandemic Influenza Management Plan to address areas that needed to be enhanced. The Oklahoma Pandemic Influenza Management Plan has been expanded from six to nine essential elements of preparedness and response which would be integral in the management of a potential influenza pandemic. The nine essential elements address Command, Control and Management; Surveillance and Laboratory Diagnostics; Delivery of Vaccine; Acquisition and Delivery of Antiviral Medications; Health Systems and Emergency Response; Community Disease Control and Prevention; Infection Control; Clinical Guidelines and Risk Communication. The Oklahoma Pandemic Influenza Management Plan and its appendices were developed as a guidance for a coordinated statewide, multi-sector response to pandemic influenza. Prevention and preparedness activities to facilitate the public health response and recovery components after a pandemic are also part of the plan guidance. The Oklahoma Pandemic Influenza Management Plan is public health-focused with the overall goal to minimize serious illness and deaths that may occur with a severe influenza pandemic."
