The campaign was developed to give Utahns critical information in three distinct areas: how to prevent the flu, how to get vaccinated, and what to do if you get sick.

• Television commercials featuring Utah Governor Gary Herbert and Utah Jazz star Paul Millsap hit the airwaves last week. In the commercials, the Governor and Millsap tell Utahns how they’ve become Flu Fighters and encourage others to join the team. The pair will also appear on billboards across the state.
• Giving Utahns the information they need to make good decisions about their health and the health of their families is one of the Utah Department of Health’s most important jobs right now. This campaign provides one-stop shopping for all Utahns to find that information.
Also part of the campaign is a Web portal ww.UtahFluFighters.org with comprehensive information on how to prevent the spread of flu, where to find a vaccination, and what to do if you get sick.
