National Influenza Vaccination Week

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will be celebrating National Influenza Vaccination Week (NIVW) December 4-10, 2016.  This observed week was established in order to highlight the importance of continuing flu vaccination awareness through the holiday season.

Many people do not know the importance and benefits of a flu vaccination.  There will be a National Influenza Vaccination Week Twitter Chat next week, where we will be joined by The American Hospital Association's new Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jay Bhatt. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn some new facts and ask questions about this years' vaccinations.  Follow  #UnitedAgainstFlu on Twitter.

Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, December 7 at 12 PM Eastern time for this Twitter event.

AHCA/NCAL has teamed up with other national health care organizations and the CDC to amplify the importance of flu vaccinations at the United Against the Flu partnership.  We recommend checking out the CDC website for guidance and checking with your medical providers to find out more.
