CDC Offers New Flu Vaccine Resource Kit

12-6 Drive FLU PicThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is getting ahead of flu season with a new resource kit, as part of its National Influenza Vaccination Disparities Partnership initiative.

Described as a “national multi-sector campaign,” the goal is to promote the importance of flu vaccination among underserved populations.

For instance: Only 33.8% of Hispanic adults have ever received a flu vaccination, and 35.6% of African Americans — two populations at increased risk of developing serious flu-related complications.

To raise awareness, the kit provides information on:

  • promoting flu vaccinations in the community
  • learning the facts about influenza — and vaccinations
  • sharing success stories
  • participating in National Influenza Vaccination Week (Dec. 7-14).
  • and more.
