Flu Vaccination Campaign for Patients 2020

Flu Vaccination Campaign for Patients 2020

ACCMA is joining the AMA, CDC, Ad Council, and others to urge flu vaccination amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

ACCMA is asking physicians to help increase flu immunization rates this year by encouraging your patients to get vaccinated. This will not only help reduce the spread of the flu, but it will also reduce the burden on our healthcare systems and medical resources while we are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

To assist you, ACCMA has compiled a list of helpful resources you can share with your patients, as well as posters, flyers, and digital media that you can share with your patients.

Thank you for doing your part to encourage flu vaccination this fall.

Patient Education:

·      CDC Info on 2020-21 Flu Season

·      CDC Flyers, Posters, Patient Communication Tools and Resources

·      CDC Healthcare Provider Toolkit

·      CDC Guidance on How to Make a Strong Flu Vaccine Recommendation

·      Media Communication Tools

·      Multi-Language Fact Sheet

·      Contra Costa County Flu Webpage

·      Alameda County Flu Webpage

 

Vaccination Locations: The 2020-21 flu season vaccine will be available throughout Contra Costa County and Alameda County beginning in the Fall of 2020. Ongoing Public Health Immunization Clinics will begin offering flu vaccine in October. Encourage your patients to receive a flu vaccine within their visit. Additional locations can be found here.
