Influenza (flu) is a potentially serious disease. Flu vaccination is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones against flu and its potentially serious complications.
For the upcoming flu season, flu vaccination is important to reduce flu because it can:
- Reduce the number of respiratory illnesses in our population
- Lessen the resulting burden on the healthcare system during the COVID-19 pandemic
- Keep individuals from getting sick with flu, reduce the severity of the illness if you do get flu, and reduce the risk of flu-associated hospitalization.
- Reduce the risk of potential co-infections with both Flu and COVID-19
