This year more than ever, getting a flu shot is not just about protecting yourself, but also your family, loved ones and community. This flu season, we’ve created storytelling tools to help spread the word about how serious the flu can be, and the importance of seasonal vaccination, especially this flu season.

Get involved and share your story on why you vaccinate for the flu!

How to Get Involved: Encourage Others to #DontDelayFightFluToday

MAKE A VIDEO: Telling your personal story and reasons you get vaccinated to fight flu is a great way to help inspire others. Make a short video (about 1 – 2 minutes long) talking about how flu has impacted you to share on your personal social media channels. Be sure to use #DontDelayFightFluToday. Here are a few questions to help get you started:

  • What is your personal experience with the flu?
  • Why do you think annual flu vaccination is so important?
  • Why do you get vaccinated for the flu?
  • Do you get vaccinated in honor or memory of someone else?

GET SOCIAL: Post your video on social media. Below are a few sample posts – use these as inspiration or post them directly! Be sure to use #DontDelayFightFluToday.

Sample Social Media Posts to Share:
Option 1: We’re all in this together! During the COVID-19 pandemic, getting a #flu vaccine is more important than ever to stay healthy and do your part to help protect your community. #DontDelayFightFluToday
