Time for Your Flu Shot! It Could Make All the Difference!
The symptoms of the flu can easily be mistaken for those of COVID-19, which could mean a flu infection could lead to quarantine for you and others.
If you get your flu shot this year, and continue to wear face coverings, maintain social distance, wash your hands and keep the spaces you’ve used clean, you can keep the flu away this fall and winter.
Also, remember, while for many, the flu is a cold-weather nuisance, it still has the potential to be deadly.
Even if you have never gotten a flu shot, this is the year to change that. With two deadly diseases circulating in the community, we want to protect you from one of them the best way we know how. The flu vaccine is simple to obtain and could save your life.
