Ads depict large and small animal, such as a mouse and an elephant, with the saying “a flu vaccine can take the flu from wild to mild.” "The intent of the Wild to Mild campaign is to reset public expectations around what a flu vaccine can do in the event that it does not entirely prevent illness," the CDC said in a press release.
