Flu Vaccination Campaign

With the convergence of COVID-19 and flu season, the CDC reports that now, more than ever, influenza vaccination is critical and necessary to protect ourselves, those we love, and our communities at large – especially people at the highest risk of flu complications, namely the approximately 200 million Americans over the age of 50 or who have chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, and asthma. Mayors can play an easy yet important role in protecting their communities from the dual threat of COVID-19 and flu by urging people to get vaccinated for flu.

Join Your Fellow Mayor and Get Your Flu Shot Today.

If 2020-21 has a high incidence of flu, it could strain or even overwhelm local hospital capacity, leaving people with COVID-19, influenza, and other acute conditions unable to get the care they need. Mayors can play an easy yet important role in protecting their communities from the dual threat of COVID-19 and flu by urging people to get vaccinated for flu. By sharing messaging about flu prevention, Mayors will be helping reach the national goal of getting 200 million people vaccinated. Please see our resources below for ways to help raise awareness.
Help us in the Race for 200M.
