Flu Shots: Help Address Disparities

The CDC recommends annual flu shots for everyone 6 months and older, including people with chronic medical conditions who have a higher risk of serious complications (see CDC). Vaccination rates for Medicare Fee-for-Service patients vary by race, ethnicity, and geographic area (see data snapshot). National Influenza Vaccination Week is a perfect time to find out how you can help address these challenges, and encourage your patients to get flu shots.
