  • Flu is a serious disease (30 second PSA, MP3)
    You may not think of flu as a serious disease, but it can lead to people getting very sick, needing hospital care and even death. Everyone six months and older should get a flu vaccine every year. This year, it's more important than ever to stay healthy and strong. Vaccines are available at doctor's offices, pharmacies or at community drive-thru flu clinics. Be a flu fighter by protecting yourself and those around you too. A message in good health from the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services.
  • Vulnerable populations (30 second PSA, MP3)
    Pregnant women, young children, our Elders and anyone with a health condition like diabetes, asthma or heart disease are more at risk for serious complications from the flu. You have the power to help protect your loved ones this flu season. Everyone six months and older should get an annual flu vaccine. Some children who have never been vaccinated before may need two doses to be fully protected, so don't wait. Get vaccinated today! A message in good health from the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services.
  • Fall and winter (15 second PSA, MP3)
    Fall and winter is when flu circulates most in Alaska. It takes about two weeks after getting a flu vaccine for your body to develop antibodies that protect against flu, so don't wait. Be a flu fighter and get vaccinated today! A message in good health from the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services.
  • Get vaccinated (15 second PSA, MP3)
    The flu can have serious health consequences so get a flu shot today! It's the first and most important thing you can do to protect against flu — and it's more important than ever this year to keep you and your loved ones healthy and strong.
