NFID Releases Toolkit on Dangers of Influenza in Adults with Chronic Health Conditions

The National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) has developed a new online toolkit to increase awareness of the dangers of influenza in U.S. adults with chronic health conditions and the importance of annual vaccination. Estimates indicate that 31% of U.S. adults age 50–64 and 47% of those age 65 and older have at least one chronic health condition that puts them at high risk for flu-related complications, including hospitalization, catastrophic disability, and even death.
