COVID-19 and the 2021/2022 Flu season
This year, more than ever, getting a flu shot is important. Why? Symptoms of the flu can be similar to COVID-19 and both can lead to older or immunocompromised people being hospitalized with severe disease. Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website for more information about flu shots.
