National Influenza Vaccination week

National Influenza Vaccination Week, December 5-9, 2022 is a reminder to everyone 6 months and older that there is still time to get their flu vaccine.

Vaccination is particularly important for people who are at higher risk of developing serious flu complications, including young children. Millions of children get sick with flu every year, and thousands will be hospitalized as a result.

Since flu viruses are constantly changing and protection from vaccination decreases over time, getting a flu vaccine every year is the best way to prevent flu. ​Flu vaccines are the only vaccines that protect against flu and are proven to reduce the risk of flu illness, hospitalization, and death.

The more people vaccinated against flu, the more people are protected from flu.
