National Influenza Vaccination Partnerships Among the General Population

The National Influenza Vaccination Campaign aims to increase flu vaccination rates among all people 6 months of age and older across the United States, with a special focus on health care professionals and those populations at high risk of flu complications including pregnant women, people with chronic diseases, seniors, and young children.

In collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), campaign partners use various digital platforms to promote vaccination messages.

Thanks to our Partners!

Dr. Joe Bresee, chief of the Epidemiology and Prevention Branch in CDC’s Influenza Division, expresses gratitude to the partners of the National Influenza Vaccination Campaign.
