Flu PSAs

The Health Department has produced new promotional PSAs on the importance of flu vaccination, emphasizing the dangers of influenza and how you can be protected with vaccines. The PSAs can be found in English and Spanish on YouTube.

The Health Department and NBC Local Media New York have enlisted Grammy winner Fatman Scoop and his wife, HIV/AIDS counselor Shanda, to help prevent the spread of influenza. In a new series of lighthearted public service announcements, the creators of the "Man and Wife" comedy act share tips on everything from sneeze etiquette to the importance of staying home when you're sick. They were produced by Addictive Networks.
