It’s more important than ever to get a flu vaccine while COVID-19 is still spreading. Flu and COVID share many of the same symptoms, so it will be difficult to tell them apart. Getting the flu vaccine can help keep you from getting sick from the flu. That will help keep you out of doctor’s offices and hospitals, saving important medical resources for COVID-19 patients. It also helps protect those at high risk for the flu, like pregnant women, babies, elders, and people with medical conditions.
