Infographic: The Benefits of Vaccination

Flu vaccines are worth getting. We estimate last season they prevented millions of illnesses and tens of thousands of hospitalizations.

6.6M (4−10.6M) influenza-associated illnesses (about the population of entire state of AZ, 2012)

3.2M (1.9−5.2M) flu-associated medical visits (more than the entire population of state of IA, 2012)

79,000 (40,000 −137,000) flu-associated hospitalizations
