Last year, 172 children deaths were reported for the 2017-18 flu season—a record number. According to health officials, 80% of those children had not gotten the vaccine. Vaccination is the first step in protecting against the flu for people 6 months of age and older as flu shots reduce the severity of the illness if infected. Along with getting vaccinated, people can take active steps to limit the spread of germs in their homes, work life, school life, and on the go through cleaning and disinfecting. While people might still contract the illness, they can manage symptoms and limit the spread of germs. This campaign will raise awareness on vaccination and provide readers with a go-to guide this flu season to keep themselves and their surroundings germ-free, helping people beat the bug.
