Flu Shot Information
As we enter the flu season, all the safeguards we’ve put in place for COVID apply for flu. Mask up, wash up, back up, clean up — and get your flu shot!
Getting a flu shot is an important way to protect yourself and those around you from seasonal influenza viruses. And it’s especially important this flu season.
Because the flu and COVID-19 have similar signs and symptoms, getting a flu shot will protect you from similar symptoms of COVID-19, including:
- Fever or feeling feverish/chills
- Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing
- Sore throat
- Runny or stuffy nose
- Muscle pain or body aches
Protect yourself from flu and eliminate it as a suspect for COVID by getting your flu shot! Still need a COVID-19 vaccine? Find a UI Health COVID-19 vaccine location.
