Flu Vaccination Campaign Background
The CDC estimates that as many as 45 million Americans get sick from the flu each season, resulting in up to 26 million medical visits and 810,000 hospitalizations every year. An annual flu shot is the best way to help protect yourself and those around you against the flu. This year, it can also help make sure healthcare workers and hospitals have the resources to continue to treat COVID-19 patients.
