About the factsheet

This factsheet provides key information on seasonal influenza and is targeting risk groups. The influenza risk groups include people who are more likely than others to develop severe disease if they should be infected, such as older adults and people with chronic medical conditions. The factsheet is a part of the ECDC "Communication guidelines on how to increase influenza vaccination uptake and promote preventive measures to limit its spread".

The influenza vaccination communication guidelines provide advice, guidance and campaign materials to support national influenza vaccination campaigns with the purpose of increasing the influenza vaccination uptake in the EU Member States. The guidelines are designed to help European health authorities and organisations to plan and develop communication activities. They can work as a complement to existing national communication initiatives or providing a basis for the launch of new activities. If you are involved in influenza communication programmes or are planning to organise communication activities on influenza prevention, these guidelines can be a helpful resource.
