Fight the Flu, Fight COVID Too

Now more than ever, it’s important to get your annual flu vaccine. 

 Get the Flu Vaccine

  • The flu can be deadly.
  • 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 have 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.

Prevent the Flu and COVID-19

  • Get vaccinated.
  • Remember, the same actions that prevent the spread of COVID-19 prevent the spread of flu:
    • wash your hands or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol often
    • stay home when sick
    • wear face coverings
    • avoid large groups of people
    • avoid people who are sick
    • stay more than 6 feet from people
  • Practice self-care to keep yourself healthy. Eat a healthy diet, stay hydrated, exercise regularly and get plenty of sleep.
