Even with Covid these past years, the flu remains a significant public health concern.
This week will assist in reminding people that there is still time to get a flu vaccine—the only vaccine that protects against flu. People with chronic conditions like asthma, diabetes, and heart disease are more likely to develop flu complications. A flu shot is the most reliable way to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community from the flu.
With so much emphasis on getting the Covid-19 vaccine and booster, it’s easy to forget about the flu’s debilitating, dangerous, and deadly threat this time of year. Experts predict this could be an especially bad flu season. The good news is that flu vaccines are available at tens of thousands of local pharmacies, doctors’ offices, community health centers, and drive-through operations. The side effects are minimal and short-lived.
Fortunately, flu shots are available to babies through our oldest seniors. The Covid-19 habits of hand-washing and mask-wearing can help further eliminate the risk of catching or spreading the flu this season.
