Sample Press Release

Virginia Gay Hospital and Clinics have just released a campaign encouraging everyone to avoid influenza. The “Fight The Flu” campaign is targeted at informing and encouraging the community to take the flu seriously, and to take the simple steps needed to protect yourself and those who can’t protect themselves.

Virginia Gay urges everyone to get their flu vaccination before the peak flu season. Influenza is a contagious respiratory disease that can lead to serious illness, hospitalization, or even death. Last year 80,000 children, adolescents, adults and seniors lost their lives to influenza-related causes.
