Get a Flu Vaccine: CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses.  Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations.  The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine by the end of October, if possible. 

Getting a flu vaccination during the COVID-19 Pandemic: CDC recommends the following precautions:

  • Practice everyday preventive actions: Cover nose and mouth, wash hands with soap and water, avoid close contact with sick people, if sick stay home
  • People at high risk or with an illness: Practice everyday preventive actions, visit your primary care doctor, health department or pharmacy in close proximity to your home
  • Ask questions: Ensure your doctor, pharmacy, or health department are following the CDC vaccination pandemic guidelines
