Support School-Based Vaccination This Flu Season

Support School-Based Vaccination This Flu Season

Last year, 341 children died from influenza-related diseases. This year, you can be a part of the solution by supporting school-based vaccination clinics.

Children are important in curbing the spread of influenza within households and communities. In one study, vaccinating children in school suggested there was a significant reduction in the rate of influenza-related outcomes in the households of children enrolled in the study.*

Therefore, focusing efforts for influenza vaccination in schools can be an effective and practical method of reducing the burden of influenza in the community.
