Every year, on December 1, the National AIDS Trust recognizes World AIDS Day to raise awareness, show support for people living with HIV/AIDS, and unite in the fight against the virus. Encourage others in your network to “Rock the Ribbon” and spread the word about HIV using the 2022 World AIDS Day campaign assets. This year’s theme is “Putting Ourselves to the Test: Achieving Equity to End HIV” — check out for various resources to bring awareness to your community. You can also share our MyHealthfinder resources on getting tested for HIV and talking to a doctor about HIV testing. And be sure to check out Healthy People 2030 to learn about objectives focused on reducing sexually transmitted infections and improving accessing quality care.   

National Influenza Vaccination Week (12/5 to 12/9)

This year, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recognizes National Influenza Vaccination week from December 5-9 to highlight the importance of flu vaccinations. Help spread the word by sharing materials from CDC’s digital media toolkit. You can also check out the Healthy People 2030 objective aimed at increasing the number of people who get the flu vaccine every year.
