The Importance of Flu Vaccination
It’s likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both spread this fall and winter. Healthcare systems could be overwhelmed treating both patients with flu and patients with COVID-19. This means getting a flu vaccine during 2020-2021 is more important than ever.
Here are some of the benefits of getting the flu vaccine:
- Flu vaccination can keep you from getting sick with flu.
- Flu vaccination is an important preventive tool for people with chronic health conditions.
- Flu vaccine can be lifesaving in children.
- Flu vaccination has been shown in several studies to reduce severity of illness in people who get vaccinated but still get sick.
