Did you know getting an annual flu vaccination is the best way to help protect yourself from the flu? Flu + You Ambassador Judith Light explains more.

The Flu + You campaign is a collaboration between the National Council on Aging (NCOA) and Sanofi Pasteur to educate older adults and their loved ones about the seriousness of the flu, the importance of getting an annual flu vaccination and flu vaccine options.  As part of the campaign, there are videos with seasonal messages from Judith Light, who explains how to help protect yourself this flu season and encourage your loved ones to do the same.  Judith Light is starring in a new Off-Broadway show and the upcoming third season of Amazon’s Transparent.  As the Flu + You ambassador for the third year, Light educates adults 65 years of age and older that getting an annual flu vaccination is one of the things they can do to help maintain their health.  Adults 65 years of age and older have flu vaccine options designed for their age group.  A higher-dose vaccine was developed specifically to address the age-related weakening of the immune system.

Watch this video to learn how to help protect yourself this flu season.
