This winter, it’s likely that both the flu virus and the coronavirus will spread respectively. Healthcare systems could be overwhelmed treating flu patients and those suffering from COVID-19. With hospitalizations increasing to combat COVID-19, getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever.
While getting a flu vaccine will not protect against the coronavirus, there are many benefits. Vaccines have been shown to reduce the risk of flu illness, hospitalization and death. They can also save healthcare resources for patients with COVID-19. It is critical to be proactive in saving space for services during the ongoing pandemic.
