Flu Shots and COVID-19

Getting a flu shot is one simple thing people can do to keep themselves and their loved ones healthy this fall and winter. While getting a flu shot won't protect you from COVID-19, it's a safe and effective way to prevent the flu. The flu vaccine may take up to two weeks to become effective, so getting it earlier in the season is ideal.
