    Long-Term Commitment of NIVDP Partners Helps Increase Flu Vaccination Rates

    In this issue, we highlight the long-term commitment of Hispanic-serving partner organizations and subject matter experts (SMEs) whose continuous efforts to promote flu vaccination have resulted in thousands of medically underserved Hispanics/ Latinos being vaccinated against the flu. These partner organizations and SMEs include:

    • The Hispanic Committee of Culpepper, which for the past three years has hosted a flu vaccination booth at the Culpepper Fiesta in Virginia, where Walgreens pharmacists have vaccinated approximately 700 people;

    • CDC SME Dr. Eduardo Aziz-Baumgartner, who for the past three years has participated in interviews with 22 Spanish- language media outlets, which has generated almost 8 million impressions (unique views);

    • Mirian Vargas, Consul of the Consulate of El Salvador in Woodbridge, Virginia, who for the past four years has coordinated flu vaccination promotion events for newly arrived immigrants; and

    • Jefferson Physicians’ Foundation in Louisiana, which for the past two years has coordinated a health fair during Binational Health Week in early October, during which more than 500 people have been vaccinated against the flu.
