Time for Your Flu Shot!

It’s that time again: time for your flu shot. The influenza vaccine lessens your chance of getting the flu and also helps symptoms be less severe if you do get it. Getting vaccinated is particularly important for those with cancer and chronic diseases.

Another group at higher than usual risk for coming down with the flu are those working in healthcare, due to an increased exposure to patients with the flu.

Flu season tends to peak by February in the United States, but it can continue through May. And for those who wonder: yes, it’s fine to get the flu shot at the same time as your Covid vaccine.

Grab your flu vax now: you’ll find it at your doctor’s office, as well as pharmacies and many grocery stores.
