2020-2021 Flu Vaccination

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) CDC recommends everyone over six months old receive a flu vaccine each year and lists many benefits:

  • Prevents millions of illnesses and flu-related doctor visits each year
  • Reduces the risk of flu-associated hospitalization for children, adults and elders
  • A preventive tool for those with chronic health conditions
  • Helps protect women during and after pregnancy
  • It can reduce the severity of illness in those who get vaccinated but still get sick

Though it will not protect against COVID-19, there are important benefits: flu vaccines have been shown to reduce the risk of flu illness, hospitalization and death. It can also save health care resources for the care of patients with COVID-19.
