Influenza (flu) severity varies from year to year, but flu season always brings serious consequences.
Flu outbreaks are unpredictable; vaccination is the best preparation for any influenza season.
Flu vaccination is the best way to prevent the flu and its complications.
Everyone age 6 months and older is recommended to get a yearly flu vaccine. This can markedly lower the risk of influenza-related illness, hospitalization, and death. And because flu and COVID-19 share many symptoms, preventing flu means fewer people will need to seek medical care and testing for flu and COVID-19, saving time, money, and stress. Flu vaccine may be given at the same time as COVID-19 vaccine. Take advantage of every opportunity to make a strong recommendation for flu vaccinations to your patients.
