National Influenza Vaccination Week is a national observance that was established to highlight the importance of continuing influenza vaccination.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) makes materials available for health care professionals and for the general public.

 

CDC recommends an annual flu vaccine as the first and best way to protect against the flu.

There are two important reasons to get a flu vaccine every year:

  1. The first reason is that because flu viruses are constantly changing, flu vaccines may be updated from one season to the next to protect against the viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming flu season.

  2. The second reason that annual vaccination is recommended is that a person’s immune protection from the vaccine declines over time. Annual vaccination is needed for best protection.
