2020 NIVW Digital Media Toolkit

From December 6-12, 2020 we will be observing National Influenza Vaccination Week, reminding everyone 6 months and older that it’s not too late to get a flu vaccine.

Below are CDC’s NIVW resources, vaccination messages, and activities. We hope you will join us this year as we encourage everyone to protect themselves and their loved ones from flu this season. You can also learn more about how to fight flu.

Share Your #SleeveUp Story

Roll your sleep up to fight flu.

Do you know someone who works to promote flu vaccination and prevent the spread of flu? During NIVW, we are encouraging partners to tell us stories about rolling their #SleeveUp for flu vaccine this flu season.

Encourage your followers on social media to roll up their sleeves for an annual flu vaccine by featuring photos of yourself and others in your community while getting a flu vaccine or showing off a bandage after getting a flu vaccine. By increasing the number of people vaccinated, we can reduce the number of flu illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths this fall and winter, which can in turn help reduce the burden on our medical system and save medical resources for the care of COVID-19 patients.
