#VaxWithMe week ahead

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is inviting providers and other key stakeholders to gear up for National Influenza Vaccination Week. The CDC plans to host numerous activities in support of NIVW, which runs Dec. 6-12 this year.

Among other things, organizers urge involvement with the #VaxWithMe Selfie social media campaign, which has the subtitle “The Viral Spread of Flu (Messages).” Participants are encouraged to post a selfie during or after getting their flu vaccine and tag their posts with the hashtag #VaxWithMe on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and/or YouTube.
