Flu Shots Still Available

Healthcare systems could still be overwhelmed treating both patients with COVID-19 and with flu this winter.  

The best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated every year.  This means getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever.

While getting a flu vaccine will not protect against COVID-19, there are important health benefits, including:

 

  • Flu vaccines have been shown to reduce the risk of flu illness, hospitalization, and death.
  • Getting a flu vaccine can also save healthcare resources for the care of patients with COVID-19.
