    National Influenza Vaccination Week highlights importance of ongoing vaccination.

    The week of January 10-16 marks this flu season's National Influenza Vaccination Week (NIVW), a national observance established to highlight the importance of ongoing influenza vaccination beyond the fall. A t this time, providers are encouraged to continue vaccinating high risk persons with the remaining supplies of seasonal vaccine and to expand 2009 H1N1 vaccination to anyone who wants it, regardless of age. Because supply and availability of the 2009 H1N1 vaccine have increased dramatically, CDC is now encouraging people who have been patiently waiting to receive the 2009 H1N1 vaccine to get vaccinated as well as continuing to encourage unvaccinated people in priority groups to get vaccinated. NIVW activities during the upcoming week will seek to enhance public awareness about ongoing influenza vaccination efforts. Influenza is unpredictable, but influenza is expected to continue for months, caused by either 2009 H1N1 viruses or regular seasonal influenza viruses.
