Do You Know the Flu Toolkit
Families Fighting Flu, in collaboration with Sanofi Pasteur and in partnership with the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) and HealthyWomen, developed an electronic toolkit to help educate health care professionals on the important role they play in flu prevention efforts and encourage them to proactively recommend annual flu vaccination. The toolkit contains several resources, including key facts on the flu vaccine, family stories on the impact of flu and suggested talking points for health care professionals to use when speaking with parents and patients about the flu vaccine.
