Campaign Promotes Flu Shots to Avert Dual Public Health Crisis

The healthcare system is still strained by the pandemic

In anticipation of a double-pronged healthcare threat, the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) launched a new campaign emphasizing the importance of flu vaccinations to protect public health as the nation continues to struggle with COVID-19.

“We need to call on Americans to do what they can right now to protect themselves and to protect their loved ones, and getting their flu vaccinations is a vital part of that,” said NACDS President and CEO Steven Anderson, IOM, FASAE, CAE. “Flu vaccinations are safe, effective and easy to get, and they are available for free under many insurance plans.”

NACDS, which represents national and retail pharmacies in traditional drug stores, supermarkets, and mass retail settings, released English and Spanish video ads designed to spread the critical public health message. An online toolkit encourages patient groups, allied healthcare associations, businesses, government, and others to sign up as partners and to use the ads, polling data, and social media resources.
