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 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!

Now in its second year, the Flu Vaccination Digital Ambassador initiative has more than doubled in size, from six Ambassadors in 2013-2014 to 13 for the 2014-2015 season. This year, Digital Ambassadors generated more than 124 million earned digital media impressions through 755 blog, website, and social media posts—an increase of more than 120 million impressions and 670 posts since the initiative’s first year.
