Flu season is an even more important topic this year as COVID-19 lingers over the community. Many individuals who are at high risk for getting COVID-19 are also at risk for getting the flu. While a flu shot won’t protect you from COVID-19, it can greatly decrease your chance of getting the flu as well as conserve medical resources for the care of individuals with COVID-19. According to the CDC, at least 410,000 people were hospitalized from the flu last year.
