Protect yourself, your loved ones and the community. Be up to date on your seasonal flu and COVID-19 vaccines.
Get the Flu Vaccine
- The flu can be deadly.
- It is predicted that the incidence of flu will be higher this year than last due to more social interactions.
- The flu vaccine is safe, and you need a flu vaccine each year.
- It is an effective way to prevent flu illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths.
- You can get sick from the flu and COVID-19 at the same time.
Everyone Should Get the Flu Vaccine
- It’s important for everyone 6 months and older to get the flu vaccine.
- If you or someone you care about is an essential worker, at high risk for complications from the flu or at high risk
for serious illness from COVID-19, make getting your flu vaccine a high priority.
- Those 12 and older can get their annual flu vaccine at the same time as a COVID-19 vaccine.
Prevent the Flu and COVID-19
- All flu vaccines will be quadrivalent this year to protect against four different flu viruses.
- Get vaccinated against both flu and COVID-19. Visit vaccines.gov or talk to your doctor or local pharmacist for
more information on where to get vaccinated.
- If you are sick, stay home and talk to your healthcare provider about getting tested.
- Remember, the same actions that prevent the spread of COVID-19 prevent the spread of flu:

- Avoid large groups of people
- Avoid people who are sick
