COVID-19 has reminded us of the importance of protecting vulnerable people and our healthcare systems. Working together, we can flatten the flu curve and help safeguard us and those around us from this preventable disease.
In addition to the Covid-19 pandemic, influenza is set to cause even more disease in the coming months. We need to protect vulnerable people and our healthcare systems from this additional burden. And the single best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated each year.
The International IFPMA is partnering with IFA (International Federation of Ageing), and together we just launched our #FlattenTheFlu online campaign to keep raising awareness of the importance of flu vaccination for healthcare workers, older adults and patients living with chronic conditions.
We’re calling health stakeholders, opinion leaders and decision-makers to partner with us in sharing our campaign messages to better prevent and control seasonal influenza.
Join our network! Together we can #FlattenTheFlu!
