  • Description:
    National Influenza Vaccination Week (NIVW) is a national observance that was established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2005 to highlight the importance of continuing influenza vaccination—as well as fostering greater use of flu vaccine—after the holiday season into January and beyond. For the 2011-2012 season, NIVW is scheduled for December 4-10 and this year’s events will encourage everyone 6 months and older to “Get the flu vaccine, not the flu.” NIVW provides an opportunity for public health professionals, health care professionals, health advocates, communities, and families from across the country to work together to promote flu vaccination. We know that many partners across the United States have plans to participate in NIVW, and the success of NIVW relies upon the involvement of partners at all levels. The following information is being shared with partners to provide an update on some of the activities that CDC and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have planned.
