OVERVIEW

Seasonal influenza circulates from the beginning fall through the early spring in the United States. And while most who become infected with the influenza virus recover without serious complications, the COVID-19 pandemic has created serious concerns of a possible double epidemic—a “twindemic”—that could put excess strain on health care systems and increase mortality. Please join Immunize Colorado and Dr. Suchitra Rao for a discussion on the importance of receiving this year’s influenza vaccine to protect our communities. At this virtual education event, Dr. Rao will discuss:

  • An overview of this year’s predicted influenza virus strains
  • The impact of COVID-19 and the importance of receiving this year’s influenza vaccine
  • Strategies for ensuring high influenza vaccination coverage rates
