Flu Season Is Back

Getting an annual flu shot is a good idea for almost everyone, but COVID-19 has made protecting yourself from the flu even more important. Cases of the flu have been down the past couple of years, likely due to masking and physical distancing we've practiced during the pandemic.

Getting COVID-19 and the Flu at the Same Time

It is possible to be infected with COVID-19 and the flu at the same time, so we should do everything we can to reduce our risk of getting sick.

Influenza and COVID-19 are both serious illnesses, and they share a number of common symptoms, including:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Fatigue
  • Chills
  • Body aches

Getting your flu shot reduces your risk of catching the flu and can reduce the overall risk of flu illness in the community by 40%-60% in a given season, according to the CDC.
