C.D.C. Urges Vaccines Ahead of Flu Season

Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said that because flu infections were low last year, immunity was likely to be diminished, making it doubly important to get inoculated.

I get my flu vaccine each year to protect myself. I’ve had flu, and I don’t want it again. I’ve always gotten the vaccine to protect the patients I’ve cared for in the hospital, and I want to protect my family. I certainly wouldn’t want to bring disease into our home. The low level of flu activity last season could set us up for severe season this year. Why? Well, because of so little disease last year, population immunity is likely lower, putting us all at increased risk for disease this year, especially among those most vulnerable, including our children. This is why it is doubly important this year that we build up community immunity with flu vaccination as we head into the fall and winter.
