Ad Council "Spaceman"
The Department of Health & Human Services and the Ad Council have teamed up to confront flu season -- and the flu vaccination shortage -- with a pair of TV spots from Merkley + Partners and Hungry Man director David Gray.

Based around the tagline "Give Others a Shot," the campaign stresses the importance of giving priority to people in high-risk groups when it comes to flu vaccinations. In one spot, various people in such groups -- children, the elderly, pregnant women -- thank viewers for allowing them to get a flu shot. Another spot delivers common sense advice about avoiding the flu, all of which is less extreme than wearing a space suit everywhere you go.
