NOTE: CDC is not a hospital or clinical facility; we do not see patients and are unable to diagnose your illness, provide treatment, prescribe medication, or refer you to specialists.

If you have a medical emergency, contacting CDC is not the proper way to get immediate help. Instead, please contact your health care provider or go to the nearest emergency room. If you are a health care provider, please contact your state epidemiologist or local health department.
