Monthly Flu Posters - Extending the Flu Vaccination Season

Description:

National Foundation for Infectious Disease (NFID) data that 4 in 10 patients have never talked to their health care professional (HCP) about influenza vaccination and 7 in 10 say they would be likely or very likely to get influenza vaccine if their HCP recommended it. The purpose of the flu monthly posters is to encourage dialogue between patients and HCP about flu vaccination. The posters are targeted towards individuals and families, with a message that is simple and straight to the point: get your flu vaccination this year and every year. Further, these posters should be utilized by HCP to foster efforts towards extending the flu vaccination season throughout the winter months and even into February and March.
