Flu and COVID-19
An annual flu vaccine is recommended for almost everyone 6 months and older.
It is one of the best ways to reduce flu illnesses, hospitalizations and death from flu.
This fall and winter, the flu virus and the virus that causes COVID-19 may both be spreading.
For that reason, getting a flu shot will be more important than ever to help people stay healthy and to ease the burden on our health care system.
Getting a flu shot now is more important than ever because doctors don’t know what the risk is of having both flu and COVID-19 at the same time.
