Since the influenza virus is unpredictable and can result in serious infections, the best thing you can do to protect your family is to get vaccinated. A flu shot can be lifesaving, especially for vulnerable populations.
"As we continue to face COVID-19, you should wear your masks, wash your hands and watch your distance by keeping space between you and others,” says James Fortenberry, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. “And this year—more than ever—it’s important to get your flu shot. These precautions will help reduce the risk of spreading of all respiratory illnesses.”
