Did you know American Indians and Alaska Natives are up to four times more likely than the general U.S. population to die from pneumonia and other influenza-related conditions? Even healthy college students like you can get the flu, and it can be serious. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine every year.
December 2-8, 2012 is National Influenza Vaccination Week (NIVW), a national observance established by the CDC to highlight the importance of continuing flu vaccination through the holiday season and beyond.
So please take the flu vaccination pledge to get vaccinated. The flu vaccine is safe. And you can’t get the flu from the flu vaccine. Your flu vaccine protects me. My flu vaccine protects you. Together, let’s protect the circle of life. Learn more at http://www.cdc.gov/flu/freeresources/print-native.htm
