Is your practice prepared to fight the flu? Flu season is upon us once again and now is a great time to initiate conversations with your patients about their plans for getting a flu shot.
Who should get the flu vaccine?
The CDC recommends everyone ages 6 months and older receive the flu shot every year. Vaccination is especially important for these high-risk groups:
- Young children
- Pregnant women
- Adults ages 65 and older
- Adults with certain chronic medical conditions, like asthma, heart disease, kidney disease and diabetes
The childhood and adolescent schedule are a helpful resource to reinforce the importance of staying up to date with your vaccinations. CPP’s purchase ordering guide is another helpful resource to keep your practice on track with ordering routine and seasonal vaccines.
If your practice has any questions regarding your flu vaccine purchases, please contact CPP at email@example.com. CPP is here to help your practice prepare during this flu season.
