It’s even more important this year to get the flu vaccine as COVID-19 continues to spread. At this time, there is no approved COVID-19 vaccine. Getting your flu shot can reduce your risk of dealing with both the flu and COVID-19. Every year the flu is different, so every year you need an updated vaccine which takes 2 weeks to offer protection.
For more information about how you can protect yourself against the flu, see the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/keyfacts.htm.
