Addressing the Challenges of Influenza Vaccination on US College Campuses, A Report by NFID

College students, living in close quarters and often juggling overloaded schedules, are largely unaware of their vulnerability to influenza viruses. On US college campuses, flu vaccination rates remain strikingly low, hovering between eight and 39 percent and falling dramatically short of target recommendations. Students often overlook the importance of, or face barriers to, taking preventive measures such as an annual flu vaccination.

Call to Action: The National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) has drafted "Improving Vaccination Rates in Pregnant Women: Timely intervention-lasting benefits," in partnership with ACOG, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
