This fall, take steps to reduce your risk of infection from Respiratory Illness.
Stay safe this respiratory illness season and prevent unnecessary visits to the hospital by getting your flu and COVID-19 shots as soon as they are available to you. It is safe to get a COVID-19 and flu shot at the same time.
This year, our community flu clinics will occur in conjunction with our COVID-19 community clinics.
Looking to get your flu and COVID-19 shots and wondering when you can receive them?
Note: High-dose flu vaccines and adjuvanted flu vaccines are recommended for people aged 65+. They are available at community clinics from October 10 to October 19 and through your primary care provider after October 23. Participating pharmacies also carry the high-dose vaccine and adjuvanted flu vaccines.
All flu vaccines protect against the flu, and the most important thing is for older adults to be vaccinated. Do not delay vaccination to wait for a particular product.
