11/16/2020

During the COVID-19 pandemic, it will be important for all individuals, especially those at high-risk, to receive an annual influenza vaccination. Influenza vaccination will be a critical strategy to decrease stress on our healthcare system, by decreasing influenza-related doctor visits and hospitalizations, as well as decreasing the number of people who will need influenza diagnostic testing.

Typically, influenza vaccination rates decline drastically by late November. However, this year, there will be an additional 9.3 million federally-funded late-season adult influenza vaccine doses available in November, December, and January. As long as flu viruses are spreading and causing illness, vaccination should continue throughout flu season in order to protect as many people as possible against flu. CDC guidance is in place for how to safely administer vaccine doses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Join us for this upcoming webinar - Flu Vaccination Through Late Fall and Winter: It’s Not Too Late! on Monday, December 7, from 2-3pm EST.
