CMS launched its 2020-21 flu shot campaign Sept. 16, which includes new resources and tools for healthcare providers. 

The campaign will largely focus on encouraging Medicare beneficiaries and those participating in other CMS healthcare programs to get vaccinated. The effort will also have a special focus on reaching people experiencing health disparities. 

The campaign comes amid a nationwide push to boost flu vaccination rates to reduce strain on hospitals and health systems during the COVID-19 pandemic.
