#WhyIFightFlu Campaign

  • CDC is currently collecting a variety of Flu Fighter profiles describing how members of the American public have been affected by flu and why they fight the often devastating disease. This hashtag campaign is focused on reinforcing the negative impact of flu and positive benefits of flu vaccine. If you’d like to participate, use the hashtag #WhyIFightFlu and share an answer to the question, “Why do you fight flu?” as we move forward with flu season. They are aiming to post these profiles after the annual flu vaccination season kickoff press conference hosted by NFID on 9/26.
