Leading by Example

Through the Leading by Example, initiative, NFID calls on community leaders in healthcare, business, education, and politics to “lead by example” by making a commitment to influenza prevention. Organizations can join the growing list of supporters and participate in the following activities:

  • Support and promote the NFID Commitment to Influenza Prevention
  • Provide a photo of key organization leader(s) getting a flu vaccine or another visual that demonstrates the organization’s commitment to flu vaccination to be shared on NFID websites (using #FightFlu paddles)
  • Encourage followers to get vaccinated by utilizing Facebook, Twitter, and/or other channels. View Leading by Example sample social media posts
