Get your flu shot this year to stay healthy—getting the flu wears your immune system down, which is not a good thing in times of COVID-19! Flu vaccines will be more available than ever this year. Protect the vulnerable and get your shot!
If you have insurance, you can get your flu vaccination shot at your primary care doctor's office, pharmacy, or urgent care clinic.
Why Get a Flu Shot?
Here are six great reasons to get your flu shot. The flu shot:
- can keep you from getting sick with flu
- can reduce the risk of flu-associated hospitalization for children, working age adults, and older adults
- is an important preventive tool for people with chronic health conditions
- helps protect pregnant women
- can be life-saving in children
- can help reduce the burden on the heath care system during the coronavirus pandemic
