Millions of Americans are preparing to give thanks and celebrate Thanksgiving with their friends and loved ones. America’s hospitals also are preparing, but for a different reason. Flu season is upon us. We again are organizing the United Against the Flu Campaign – a collaborative effort by several national health care organizations to amplify the importance of getting vaccinated during flu season. The online hub, www.advancinghealthinamerica.org/flu, provides information and resources on the flu vaccine, and why it’s important for nearly every person to get vaccinated. To keep folks out of the hospital and at the dinner table, the responsibility lies in your hands to get a flu shot and protect yourself and your family this flu season.
