DDS Campaign to Eliminate Flu and Pneumonia

As part of the California Department of Developmental Services’ (DDS) quality assurance response to the National Core Indicators (NCI) survey results, DDS is launching a campaign to get individuals with a developmental disability vaccinated for flu and those 65 years old and older, as well as those with certain chronic conditions, vaccinated for pneumonia. This is an ambitions goal, but vaccinations are easy to get and save lives.
