Flu Near You

Description: 

Early detection and early response are key to preventing the spread of any disease. We believe that letting individuals report symptoms in real-time can complement traditional tracking while providing useful information directly to the public.

How it works:

Voluntary Participation = Take just a few seconds to report how you’ve been feeling. It’s free and anonymous.

Crowdsourced Data = Thousands of reporters across the country also contribute weekly.

Visualized Data = Reports are collected and mapped so that you know when the flu is around.
