Health Alert Network Updates

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) protects people's health and safety by preventing and controlling diseases and injuries; enhances health decisions by providing credible information on critical health issues; and promotes healthy living through strong partnerships with local, national, and international organizations.

The CDC and the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services periodically send Health Alert Network updates to Nebraska healthcare providers, clinics, hospitals and public health departments.  We will post current HAN updates here; older HAN updates may be found on the HAN Update Archive page on this website.
