Hosted by Immunize Oregon, a lifespan immunization coalition, the annual Flu Summit provides education on current information and practices for the upcoming flu season.
Influenza is a vaccine-preventable disease that can be unpredictable from season to season, and puts communities at risk for sickness and death. Influenza vaccination rates still remain low in Oregon and across the country, resulting in community vulnerability. For this reason, we invite partners to the Flu Summit who wish to learn more influenza, share innovative ideas, and support health equity for all.
