  • Description:
    Thousands continued to be vaccinated during National Influenza Vaccination Week (NIVW)—many for the first time—thanks to the extraordinary work of partners from the National Influenza Vaccination Disparities Partnership (NIVDP). The events engaged hundreds of community leaders, including mayors, public health officials, and the media to reach out to underserved communities around the country. With 40 events in 12 markets, NIVDP held 30 percent more promotional activities this year than last.

    Representatives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reminded everyone six months and older that it’s not too late to get vaccinated. This year, mayors from Chicago, Illinois; Flint, Michigan; and Opelousas and New Orleans, Louisiana issued proclamations recognizing NIVW. We topped last year’s media engagement with support from leading minority TV, radio and print outlets. Social media expanded with the participation of leading African American and American Indian bloggers. We will highlight more NIVDP activities and results in the January issue.
