It's Flu Season!

Getting your flu vaccine is your first step towards keeping you and your family safe this flu season. Everyone 6 months or older should get an annual flu vaccination - especially essential workers and those at increased risk for COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses.

 

Why Get the Vaccine?

The flu vaccination can keep you from getting sick and is a preventative measure for people with chronic health conditions. Children under 6 months old and people with certain health conditions cannot get a flu vaccine and are at increased risk for catching the virus and becoming very ill. Flu vaccinations not only protect you, they protect those around you.

Flu Virus & COVID-19

Due to COVID-19, this flu season is expected to be very severe. While the flu vaccine will not protect you from COVID, the flu vaccine helps keep you out of the hospital so healthcare workers can focus on caring for people with COVID.

 

Many flu and COVID symptoms are the same; both illnesses can be mild or severe.

 

Commons symptoms shared by COVID-19 and flu are: fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing; fatigue, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle pain or body aches, headache, vomiting and diarrhea.

 

Signs and symptoms of COVID-19, different from flu, may include change in or loss of taste or smell.

 

Typically, a person develops flu symptoms anywhere from 1 to 4 days after infection, but a person develops COVID symptoms 5 days after being infected even though symptoms can appear as early as 2 days after infection or as late as 14 days after infection, and the time range can vary.

Transmission:

The flu and COVID-19 are both spread from person to person through droplets in the air from an infected person.

 

COVID-19 may also be spread through the airborne route through tiny droplets remaining in the air.

 

Both can be spread by an infected person several days before symptoms appear.

 

COVID-19 is more contagious among certain populations and age groups than flu.

 

COVID can spread quickly and result in continuous spreading among people as time progresses.
