3 Influenza Season Imperatives: Vaccinate, Vaccinate, Vaccinate


The CDC estimates delivery of a record 194 to 198 million doses of influenza vaccine this year. The primary care imperative: vaccinate, vaccinate, vaccinate.

Two new quadrivalent vaccines licensed for adults aged ≥65 years are available this season to help prevent influenza among this traditionally vulnerable population. Along with 7 other vaccines recommended this year, these agents are already in production with a supply of between 194 - 198 million doses projected for delivery for the 2020-2021 US influneza season.

That number tops last season's record by about 20 million.

With COVID-19 enduring and other seasonal respiratory viruses in circulation, reliance is heavy on first-line providers to help administer every single one of those doses. Here, click through a few more facts on the season, the vaccines, and the populations at greatest risk this year.
