KEEP FLU OUT OF SCHOOL

Keep Flu Out of School is the five-year CDC-funded cooperative agreement that partners FFF with the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) and the National Foundation for infectious Diseases – Childhood Immunization Coalition (NFID) to promote flu prevention efforts among the youngest students. Thanks to generous additional support from AstraZeneca, FFF developed the material linked above. These materials will reach thousands of children in Kindergarten through Grade 5, their teachers and their families in three public school districts: Chicago, IL; Springfield, MO; and Santa Rosa County, FL!

Losing a Child to Influenza

Losing a loved one is the most difficult thing a person ever goes through. Whether you are a parent or family member struggling with the loss of a child from the flu, or your community has been affected, dealing with your grief while also communicating with your children, friends and family presents its own set of challenges.

If you have suffered a personal loss, or your community has been affected by the flu, we have emotional support materials that will help you understand the bereavement process and how you can best support those around you, including your children. Please know that we are here for you and your family and want to help any way we can.

#Knock Out the Flu

Although college students might be soaking up a lot of knowledge in school, there’s one piece of information that may not be sinking in: the importance of getting vaccinated against the flu. While the CDC recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older get a flu vaccine every season, college-aged adults have low vaccination rates of just 8 to 30 percent.

To help educate college-aged adults and encourage vaccination against the flu, Families Fighting Flu partnered with Seqirus to provide education and outreach at five colleges and universities. Students at Temple University; University of Florida; University of Rhode Island; Texas A & M; and Auburn University received flu prevention information, vouchers for flu vaccinations, and in some cases, receive a vaccination at a campus clinic. Students communicated about their experiences via social media using the hashtag #KnockOutFlu.

Stay in the Game During Flu Season!

Every year in the U.S., children miss more than 38 million days of school and 5 million sporting events due to the flu, a potentially deadly disease that is often underestimated in its severity. Families Fighting Flu’s Stay in the Game™ multi-year national educational campaign focuses on the critical need for annual flu vaccination for the entire family. An important component of the Stay in the Game campaign is a national broadcast TV public service announcement (PSA), which shares the unbelievable story of Madison Allen, a 15-year-old flu survivor who was given only a 1 percent chance to live after being diagnosed with the flu.
