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.
