Poison Center hotline shares flu information

The Tennessee Poison Center is partnering with the Tennessee Department of Health to sponsor a Flu Information Hotline. Already the hotline is fielding an average of 400 calls each week from across the state.

Callers can find information about how to address seasonal flu as well as information about the H1N1 flu strain.

To reach the hotline, call (877) 252-3432 between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. Information is also available via the hotline for non-English speaking callers.
