Lysol® is proud to have partnered with numerous groups and Centers of the CDC since 1998 in an effort to help promote health and hygiene both in the U.S. and around the world. Specific initiatives have included:
CDC's Flu Prevention Program: "Don't Get The Flu. Don't Spread The Flu. Get Vaccinated."
In conjunction with their National Influenza Vaccination Week, CDC has developed hands-on information relating to flu basics, how to prevent the flu, and information on flu vaccination. Based upon the significance of annual flu, Lysol® dedicates a section of its own web site reinforcing CDC education to consumers regarding the need for prevention through vaccination.
CDC/Lysol®’s Ounce of Prevention Program
