These accounts will be updated several times a week with information from both the CDC and Google Flu Trends. If you’d like to stay informed about the flu activity in your city, it’s as easy as following the account- Updates about both city and state level flu activity will then appear right in your timeline!

This is a bit of an ambitious effort, so we’re starting with major metropolitan areas (45 or so initially). If you don’t see your nearest big city on this list, please nudge us on Twitter and we’ll try to add your city to our list!
