“The CDC believes that influenza viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will have concurrent spread during this fall and winter season,” said Valerie Fulton, infectious disease manager in University Health Services. “The symptoms of influenza viruses have a resemblance to symptoms of COVID-19, so the flu vaccine will be more important than ever this year. Influenza symptoms can keep you bedridden for a week or more. An annual flu vaccine is the best way to help protect you against getting an influenza infection.”

UHS and the CDC recommend that everyone six months and older receive a flu vaccine.
