Influenza is an unpredictable and serious disease that can devastate communities and cost billions of dollars in lost productivity and health care expenses.

The best way to be protected from the flu is to get vaccinated. When enough individuals in a community are vaccinated, protection against flu is provided for those who are most vulnerable; the elderly, pregnant women, infants, and people who have chronic health conditions or are immunocompromised.

  • On average 200,000 people in the U.S. are hospitalized each year from flu and its related complications.
  • During the 2014-15 influenza season, 141 pediatric deaths were associated with flu in unvaccinated children.
  • Prevention of influenza has a significant impact on productivity by reducing absenteeism in the workplace.

While seasonal influenza outbreaks can happen as early as October, most of the time influenza activity peaks in January or later. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body, thus it is best to be vaccinated before influenza begins spreading in our community. Immunity from the vaccine lasts around 6 months, so the optimal time to be vaccinated is in October, August is TOO EARLY!

Life is filled with choices. And one of the most important choices many of us face is whether or not to get a vaccination against influenza each year. This informative video explores what happens when one man decides not to get a vaccination and the potential impact it has on his co-workers, people he meets in his travels, and his loved ones at home. After his harrowing experience, he thinks twice when given a second opportunity to “make the right choice.”
