Help Raise Awareness and #FightFlu this Season!

On December 6 join the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on social media to promote flu vaccinations using the hashtags #FightFlu and #CalMediConnect!

To encourage vaccination and emphasize the seriousness of flu, CMS is coordinating social media education and outreach with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention during National Influenza Vaccination Week December 3-9. Please share the message that getting an annual flu vaccination is important for beneficiaries and their families, care providers, and community members. Amplify your organization’s commitment to combating this flu season by tweeting, blogging, and sending newsletters to your stakeholders!
