Dear Public Service Director,

 

It’s time to get your flu shot! Vaccination is the best protection against contracting the flu. According to the website www.flu.gov, which provides comprehensive government-wide information on the flu, everyone 6 months of age and older should get vaccinated against the flu this year.

 

 The flu is a contagious disease which affects the lungs and can lead to serious illness, including pneumonia. While pregnant women, young children, older people, and people with certain chronic medical conditions like asthma, diabetes and heart disease are at increased risk of serious flu-related complications, even healthy people can get sick enough to miss work or school for a significant amount of time or even be hospitalized.

 

 Flu seasons are unpredictable. They can begin early in the fall and last late into the spring. As long as flu season isn’t over, it’s not too late to get vaccinated, even during the winter. Getting a flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and your family.

 

UnitedHealthcare is committed to helping people live healthier lives. That’s why we produced this public service announcement campaign to encourage people to get their flu shot and direct your listeners to the website www.flu.gov so they find out where they can get flu shots locally. The PSA campaign can run now through December 31, 2012.

 

As a broadcaster, we know you are committed to informing your listeners about important health issues. We ask that you broadcast the 30-second or 60-second public service announcement audio files; links pasted above, or use the script below for your announcers to voice.

 

Your radio station serves as a vital link in getting out important health information to the public. We hope you can partner with us and broadcast this important health message. Please call me at 860-702-5341 if I can provide you with any further information or assistance.

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Kristen Cordiano,
