7                Haemophilus influenzae is a bacterium that can be found in the nose and throat
8                of some people. Despite its name, it is not related to the influenza virus. If H.
9                influenzae gets into the bloodstream it can cause a variety of infections in
10                normally sterile body sites (known as invasive infections) including bacteremia,
11                meningitis, pneumonia and septic arthritis. H. influenzae bacteria are spread
12                from person to person through direct contact with respiratory secretions. There
13                are a number of strains of H. influenzae that can cause invasive infections, but
14                the most virulent strain is H. influenzae type B (Hib). Although Hib was once a
15                common cause of invasive infections in infants and children, routine use of the
16                Hib vaccine has led to a dramatic decline in cases in the United States.  Unimmunized
17                children younger than 4 years of age are at increased risk of invasive Hib disease.
18                For more information on Hib vaccine, please see [http://ibis.health.state.nm.us/view/docs/Query/IDEpi/HFluTypeB.1213.pdf].[[br]][[br]]
