  • Description:
    In this issue of Influential News, we highlight a range of flu vaccination promotional efforts by the NIVDP partners. Regardless of size, NIVDP flu vaccination awareness events are making a difference in communities that reach medically underserved populations. Many partners work with their local health departments to host mass flu vaccination events. For new partners, often the first step towards launching a major flu vaccination awareness event is working with a local clinic or organization. Some examples include:

    • Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, North Carolina, held its first ever flu vaccination promotion event on campus for students and community members;

    • Open Door Clinic in Raleigh, North Carolina, organized flu vaccination clinics for older adults, and those living with chronic diseases;

    • Gerald L. Ignace Indian Health Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin organized a flu vaccination event with their tribal communities; and

    • VOCES of Puerto Rico coordinated a mass vaccination event called Flupalooza and vaccinated more than 8,000 people.
