PKIDs’ FLU’S GONNA LOSE CAMPAIGN

Medical historians believe that influenza became a human disease about 6000 years ago. Despite the enormous scientific, medical and technological sophistication we enjoy today, influenza, combined with pneumonia, is a leading cause of death in the United States.

On average, 36,000 individuals die annually from influenza-related causes and over 200,000 are hospitalized. Every year, five to 20 percent of those persons living in the United States will become infected.

As individuals, we want to protect ourselves against a largely preventable disease. As a community, we must get vaccinated to protect our youngest and oldest citizens—those most at risk not only for infection, but for the complications that can arise from infection.

PKIDs’ Flu’s Gonna Lose campaign urges family and community members to spread the health by refusing the opportunity to experience the vagaries of this deadly disease and instead, offer up an arm to immunization, wash our hands, cover our coughs and sneezes, and stay home to stop the spread of disease.
