According to recent data from the World Health Organization, the cumulative number of confirmed cases of new crowns worldwide has exceeded 20 million, and the cumulative number of deaths has exceeded 730,000. Among them, the United States, as the most severely affected country in the world, accounts for about a quarter of the total number of confirmed cases in the world. In recent weeks, the number of new confirmed cases and deaths in a single day in the United States has remained high. The Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Robert Redfield, MD) warned that if Americans do not take preventive measures such as wearing masks and maintaining social distancing, then in the fall, along with influenza and new crown pneumonia, the United States may experience historical " The most terrible autumn".

One of the preventive measures that everyone must take. Redfield urged Americans to add a fifth preventive measure to their fall to-do list: influenza vaccination.
