Secretary Sebelius Urges Americans to Get Flu Vaccine

Secretary Sebelius has designated January 10-16 as National Influenza Vaccination Week (NIVW).  In doing so, the Secretary noted that while the number of H1N1 cases have dropped significantly in recent weeks, the need to fight against the viruses remains critical.  Pointing out that flu experts warn that we should prepare for a possible third wave of H1N1 flu, Sebelius encouraged persons who have not yet been vaccinated to take advantage of the more than 118 million doses of the H1N1 flu vaccination available and get vaccinated during NIVW.
