Flu Shot Information

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
  •  Cough
  •  Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing
  •  Fatigue/tiredness
  •  Sore throat
  •  Runny or stuffy nose
  •  Muscle pain or body aches

Protect yourself from the flu and eliminate it as a suspect for COVID-19 by getting your flu shot! Still need a COVID-19 vaccine? Find a UI Health COVID-19 vaccine location.
