CDC National Influenza Vaccination Week is Dec 5-11, 2021
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has declared December 5-11 as National Influenza Vaccination Week. This annual observance is scheduled in early December as a reminder that there is still time to receive a vaccination to ensure protection against the flu during the coming season. The vaccine is recommended for everyone over the age of six months, and is most critical for those with chronic conditions and health risks.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) provides recommendations on flu vaccine in a recently published paper.
Proactive businesses can Improve employee population health by helping prevent workers from contracting and spreading the flu. Most importantly, providing a influenza vaccination service reinforces a supportive company culture by demonstrating a commitment to employee health and wellness. While the flu vaccine is recommended every year, it has become a higher priority during the pandemic, when heath care systems are overburdened with COVID-19 patients. Reducing the risk of flu is of benefit to individuals, organizations, and the community at large.
