The COVID-19 pandemic has brought huge public health challenges and the flu shot is being strongly encouraged by the CDC, MDH, and local public health. It's likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both spread this winter. This means getting a flu vaccine this season is more important than ever to reduce the risk of flu for yourself, your family, and your community. It can also reduce the burden of flu illness on the health care system and save medical resources to care for people with COVID-19.
