United Against the Flu Campaign
The American Hospital Association launched the United Against the Flu campaign in coordination with national health care organizations, including the CDC, to highlight the importance of getting vaccinated.
The campaign targets health care practitioners and patients, especially pregnant women, young children, and the elderly, to encourage everyone to receive their flu shot. This campaign also aims to correct misinformation such as the myth that a flu shot can actually cause the flu or that the vaccination are dangerous for pregnant women.
