National Influenza Vaccination Week — December 8-14

December 8-14, is National Influenza Vaccination Week (NIVW). NIVW is a national health observance established to highlight the importance of continuing influenza vaccination. Historically, seasonal flu vaccination activity drops significantly at the end of November. While in "holiday mode", it is important to get vaccinated to protect yourself and your family against the flu. It’s not too late to vaccinate. 

Seasonal flu vaccination is also important for health care providers and their staff.

While some providers may offer flu vaccines, those that don’t can help their patients locate flu vaccines within their local community. TheHealthMap Vaccine Finder is a free, online service where users can search for locations offering flu and other adult vaccines.
