National Influenza Vaccination Week is Next Week

The week of December 6-12, 2015 has been designated as National Influenza Vaccination Week (NIVW). The week will be marked with educational and promotional activities nationwide. NIVW began a decade ago to recognize the importance of annual influenza vaccination and to promote greater use of the influenza vaccine in December, January, and subsequent months. As of November 13, about 133 million doses of 2015-2016 seasonal influenza vaccine had been distributed across the country.
