Weekly Influenza Surveillance

Too many people in the United States remain unprotected from the flu going into the holiday season.

If you have not gotten your flu vaccination yet this season, you should get one now.

What you need to know for the 2013-2014 Season

NIVW Press Conference

A new report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today during National Influenza Vaccination Week (NIVW) highlights the benefits flu vaccine can provide, estimating conservatively that influenza vaccination prevented 79,000 hospitalizations and 6.6 million illnesses last season. The report also underscores how severe flu can be; it includes an estimate that 381,000 Americans were hospitalized from the flu last season.
Despite the benefits of vaccination and the potential severity of the flu, CDC also announced that fewer than half of Americans have gotten vaccinated so far this season. The agency hopes this information will encourage people who are still unvaccinated to get their vaccine before the 2013-2014 flu season takes off.
