#TogetherAgainstFlu online campaign aims to keep raising awareness of the importance of flu vaccinations for healthcare workers, older adults and patients living with chronic conditions.

We’re calling on health stakeholders, patient and advocacy organisations, opinion leaders and decision-makers to partner in sharing these campaign messages with their audiences. Our evidence-based messages aim to support their own advocacy for the prevention and control of seasonal influenza.
