H1N1 Flu – Assess Your Symptoms

To prevent the spread of the H1N1 Flu Virus and to help people learn whether they have the symptoms of H1N1, members of the general public are being urged to use online assessment tools to check their symptoms before going to an emergency room or doctor's office.

Emory University has put together a free interactive tool to help the public assess their symptoms on the Internet. The website also gives guidance to help make informed decisions about seeking access to healthcare. Website visitors do not have to give their names. The Self-Assessment is free.

The US Department of Health and Human Services provides an online H1N1 Self-Evaluation interactive tool as well.

These interactive tools are not a substitute for diagnosis and treatment by a healthcare professional.
