Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Tracks Decrease in Flu Vaccine Coverage

CDC continues to track flu vaccination coverage throughout the United States. Recent estimates show decreases in flu vaccine uptake among adults, children and pregnant people. With flu season ongoing in the U.S., CDC continues to recommend flu vaccination, as well as early antiviral drug treatment for people with flu symptoms who are very sick, for example, hospitalized, or at higher risk of developing severe illness. Health care provider recommendations for vaccination are important for increasing vaccination uptake.
