While the numbers vary in the United States, millions of people are sickened, hundreds of thousands are hospitalized, and tens of thousands of people die from the flu every year.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) January 11, 2018
During peak flu season, Mediaplanet announces the launch of December’s edition of “Fighting the Flu.” This awareness campaign prepares readers for flu season by addressing powerful preventive measures one can take at home, work and school during this time of year, as well as debunking some of the biggest myths surrounding the flu once and for all.
This flu season will vary in severity depending on many different factors including the characteristics of circulating viruses, the timing of the season, how well the vaccine is protecting against influenza infection, and how many people get vaccinated. While the numbers vary in the United States, millions of people are sickened, hundreds of thousands are hospitalized, and tens of thousands of people die from the flu every year. Although it’s impossible to predict what this flu season will be like, the first and most important step in preventing the flu is to get a flu vaccination each year.
The print component of “Fighting the Flu” was distributed within USA Today in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Washington DC/Baltimore markets, with a circulation of approximately 250,000 copies and an estimated readership of 750,000. The digital component is distributed nationally, through a vast social media strategy, and across a network of top news sites and partner outlets.
