Know the facts about flu vaccination during COVID-19

Did you know at least 3 out of every 4 adults in the US are behind on routine vaccinations like flu, Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis), Hepatitis A, and HPV (Human Papillomavirus)?1

Many respiratory viruses that appear similar often circulate at higher levels in fall and winter. Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza viruses (flu), SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), and others co-circulating during these same months could place stress on healthcare systems.2

According to the CDC, vaccination is the best way to reduce the chance of illness and complications, including those resulting in hospitalization and death, from influenza and COVID-19.2
