Remember to get your Flu Shot!

Posted: September 18, 2020

Like it or not, flu season is here.

During the upcoming flu season, getting a flu vaccination will be even more important because it can help reduce the overall impact of respiratory illnesses on the population, thus lessening the burden on the healthcare system during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ensuring that people continue (or start) getting routine vaccinations during the COVID-19 pandemic is essential for protecting people and communities from vaccine-preventable diseases and outbreaks, including flu. Routine vaccinations prevent illnesses that lead to unnecessary medical visits and hospitalizations, which further strain the healthcare system.

Even healthy people can get the flu! Reduce your risk of getting sick by getting a flu shot every year.

Where can you get a flu shot?

  • Your local in-network pharmacy is the easiest way! Pharmacies are open evenings and weekends, making getting your flu shot that much easier!

  • You can also visit your in-network doctor or ask your employer if they have an upcoming flu shot clinic.

Stay healthy this flu season!
