This year, it’s more important than ever, to get a flu shot. Flu season begins in October and can last until May. That means our community will be fighting the Flu and COVID-19 at the same time. With both the Flu and COVID having similar symptoms like, fever, cough, and difficulty breathing its more important than ever to get a flu vaccine to protect yourself and keep our healthcare system from being overburdened. Getting vaccinated yourself can also help protect people around you, including those who are more vulnerable to serious flu illness, like babies and young children, older people, and people with certain chronic health conditions.
The CDC recommends that everyone over the age of 6 months receive a flu vaccine especially those with chronic conditions, pregnant women and people over the age of 65.
