It’s time to get
your Flu shot

National Influenza Immunization Week

National Influenza Vaccination Week is a call to all Americans to get their annual influenza, or flu, vaccine if they have not already. All individuals ages six months or older should receive the flu vaccine.
The flu vaccination is particularly important for people who are most vulnerable to developing serious flu complications, including people with certain chronic conditions such as asthma, diabetes, and heart disease. In fact, last flu season 9 out of 10 adults hospitalized for flu had at least one reported underlying medical condition.
This year that message is more important than ever, especially given the possibility that both flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will spread at the same time this winter. COVID-19 cases are already placing a tremendous burden on the health care system. There is real worry that having both illnesses circulating together will result in many more hospitalizations and deaths than during a regular flu season. This is especially a concern for people managing chronic conditions because many of them also are at higher risk from COVID-19.

The good news is that there is a flu vaccine that is tried and true; it is proven to reduce the risk of flu illness, hospitalizations, and death.

The more people vaccinated against flu; the more people protected from flu.

There is so much that is beyond our individual control this winter season. But we do have the power to get a flu shot to protect ourselves and our families from flu and its complications. Flu vaccination during the COVID-19 pandemic should be of added importance because it can help reduce the overall burden of respiratory disease and save medical resources for the care of COVID-19 patients.
We hope you will join in getting your vaccine and encouraging your loved ones to do the same, from the youngest infants to elderly family members, and to caregivers, to protect themselves and their loved ones from flu this season.
