The 2022-2023 flu season is here, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends anyone 6 months and older get an annual flu shot, unless they have a medical condition that prevents them from getting one. While it's not possible to say with certainty what will happen during this flu season, CDC believes it's likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both be active.

We've developed this Seasonal Influenza Vaccine toolkit to give you messages and graphics you can use locally through various platforms. Use the materials provided in this toolkit to help educate the military community about important information regarding the flu vaccine.
