As Louisiana remains vulnerable to storms in the midst of hurricane season, contaminated flood waters pose the threat of infectious diseases. The Louisiana Department of Health has therefore provided vaccine recommendations to healthcare providers, shelter workers, rescue workers, and others who may be affected by flooding throughout Louisiana.
View the specific vaccine recommendations, with specific information for different groups, as well as other important health information related to flooding, such as wound care response, allergies, and animal bite treatment, at http://www.dhh.louisiana.gov/index.cfm/newsroom/detail/4332.
The information provided on the DHH website serves as general guidance. Recommendations may be different for specific professions.
