Note: For the 2016-2017 season, CDC recommends use of the flu shot (inactivated influenza vaccine or IIV) and the recombinant influenza vaccine (RIV). The nasal spray flu vaccine (live attenuated influenza vaccine or LAIV) should not be used during 2016-2017. The 2016-2017 influenza vaccination recommendations are now available.
CDC offers free resources to meet various audiences and platforms, including print materials, digital and web tools, audio and video public service announcements, mobile-ready information tools, and imaging.
We encourage you to visit National Public Health Information Coalition's (NPHIC's) seasonal flu communications resource library where you can search their database of partner materials and even share (upload) your own flu communication resources. The Public Health Image Library (PHIL) is another resource available which includes photos, illustrations, and videos free of charge for reference, teaching, presentation, and public health messages.
The materials provided in this area are designed to encourage influenza prevention.
This page lists all Seasonal Flu eCards, infographics, animated images, web badges, buttons, and widgets related to influenza prevention.
This Long-Term Care Employers toolkit is a guide to increasing flu vaccination among healthcare personnel in long-term care settings. It includes resources intended to help long-term care facility owners and administrators provide access to influenza vaccination for their workforce, and to help anyone working in long-term care understand the importance of influenza vaccination for their employees.
