he United States. Fighting Flu Fatigue examines lessons from the H1N1 pandemic to inform future flu policies and prevention in the United States.

"Following the H1N1 pandemic, we could take two different paths," said Jeffrey Levi, PhD, Executive Director of TFAH.

  • Education about the need for flu shots, focused on why everyone should get immunized and the safety of the shots;
  • Special, concerted outreach to minority groups. It is particularly important to use targeted, culturally-appropriate messages and messengers that encourage vaccinations and address negative beliefs and misi
