From December 5th-11th, we celebrate National Influenza Vaccination Week (NIVW).
Vaccination is an important way to help protect against the flu. Vaccination is particularly important for people who are at higher risk of developing serious complications.
“Together, we can use NIVW as a nationwide call to action to encourage everyone 6 months and older to get their annual flu shot, especially those at higher risk. The more people vaccinated against flu, the more people are protected from flu.”
