Get your flu shot! Most ARC clinics offer in-clinic flu shots only this year due to staffing needs for COVID-19 testing and vaccine. Limited drive-thru options are available and you can view them on the online flu schedule. Instructions for drive-thru flu shots are noted in your appointment confirmation if available.
 
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. You can request to get your COVID-19 vaccine at the same time as your flu vaccine.
 
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.
