National Influenza Vaccination Week December 3rd - 9th
The CDC and its partners choose the month of December for National Influenza Vaccination Week to remind people that even though the holiday season has begun, it is not too late to get a flu vaccine.
The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. People of every age, including people in good health, are at risk of flu.
As long as flu viruses are spreading and causing illness, vaccination should continue throughout the flu season in order to protect as many people as possible against the flu.
