This year it is especially important to get the flu vaccine as it is likely flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will be spreading simultaneously. Protecting yourself against flu allows your body’s immune system to fight other viruses.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends universal flu vaccination, meaning that everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine. The single best way to protect against the flu is for everyone to get vaccinated—every year.
