According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) getting your annual influenza vaccine is the most effective way to decrease flu illness, hospitalizations and death. [1] Due to this year’s COVID-19 pandemic, it is especially important to receive your annual flu vaccine given the presence of both the influenza and COVID-19 viruses. It is also important given many people are delaying preventive medical care as a result of shelter-in-place orders. Receiving a flu shot may help reduce burden on the healthcare system at a time when COVID-19 is stretching resources.
