National Influenza Vaccination Week

Posted by Laura on January 13, 2010

The week of January 10-16, 2010 marks this season’s National Influenza Vaccination Week (NIVW). The week is focused by who should get their shots and when. I totally missed the health care workers day, but since I will be a caregiver of infants less than 6 months old – Today is the day!

Day Focus
Sunday, January 10 Kickoff
Monday, January 11 General audience and health care workers
Tuesday, January 12 People with chronic health conditions that put them at high-risk of serious influenza–related complications
Wednesday, January 13 Children, pregnant women, and caregivers of infants less than 6 months old
Thursday, January 14 Young adults (19 through 24 years old)
Friday, January 15 Seniors
Saturday, January 16 Wrap up


     So off to Walgreens or Savon. $18 for my H1N1 shot!

So Walgreens is $18, Savon was $15, but my insurance Tricare actually paid for this one 🙂
