#KansasFightsFlu is a campaign to encourage healthcare providers and organizations to raise awareness on the importance of influenza immunization rates in our communities.
The goal is to increase rates of influenza vaccinations across Kansas for the 2020-2021 flu season.
IKC Flu Immunization Goals
2019-20 Flu Season
IKC set goals for the 2019-20 flu season influenza immunization rates for children and adults in Kansas. The goals were to increase the flu immunization rate for children (6 mo-17 yrs) from 63.3% (2018-19) to 70%, and for adults (18+ yrs) to increase from 46.8% (2018-19) to 60%.
New, data-driven influenza immunization goals will be set for the 2020-21 flu season based on vaccination data from past flu seasons. For historical data on Kansas influenza immunization rates, see the IKC Data Dashboard tab for Influenza or check out CDC's FluVaxView Interactive! tool.
