Resources for Flu Prevention Partners

This web site is intended to be a resource that partners can use in their flu prevention activities.

CDC's #VaxWithMe Social Media Campaign

Spread the Word, Not the Flu. #VaxWithMe - Broncos - Julius ThomasCDC's #VaxWithMe campaign campaign encourages individuals to share photos and videos of themselves (tagged #VaxWithMe) during or after getting their flu vaccination. In 2014-15, the #VaxWithMe digital campaign, part of the CDC’s National Flu Vaccination Campaign, gained visibility when 22 partners created and promoted content on their social media channels. These partner activities played a key role in boosting the campaign, and through the viral spread of social media, more individuals and organizations joined by posting their own #VaxWithMe content and encouraging others to do the same.

This interactive timeline (called a parallax) displays the #Vaxwithme partner posts from various social media platforms. Within the timeline, a user has the functionality on each post that one would have on the actual social media platforms; the ability to follow, comment, retweet, like, favorite, and play videos. Many thanks to all of our CDC partners who participated in the #Vaxwithme campaign during the 2014-2015 influenza season. We look forward to expanding this campaign even further next season!
