FluTracking is a surveillance system that harnesses the power of the internet and community spirit for monitoring influenza. Participation in this system will contribute to scientific research and help to track influenza in the local community and nation-wide.
A simple online survey that takes less than 10 seconds each week during flu season can tell us so much.
The main aims of FluTracking are to develop a system that can provide:
- Community level influenza-like illness surveillance
- Consistent surveillance of influenza activity across all jurisdictions and over time; and
- Year-to-year comparison of the timing, attack rates, and seriousness of influenza in the community.
