Racial and ethnic minority groups are disproportionately affected when it comes to receiving recommended vaccines. Many factors can contribute to lower vaccination rates, including concerns about vaccine safety and limited access to care and health coverage.

Prepare for Flu Season

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccination rates have declined, putting communities at an increased risk for preventable diseases. With the 2020-2021 flu season approaching, CMS OMH has compiled a list of flu and immunization resources for health care providers, partners, and patients to help everyone prepare for flu season. We have also prepared a list of resources in other languages.

The CDC recommends everyone six months of age or older needs a flu vaccine. Most health insurance plans cover recommended vaccines at no or low cost to patients and are available at most health care provider offices. The flu vaccine, along with other vaccines, are also available at local pharmacies, health centers, health departments, and travel clinics.
