Don’t forget about the flu, get your shot

COVID-19 and the seasonal influenza are two different diseases. The “regular” flu can be deadly — though not nearly so much as COVID.

The good news is that you don’t have to wait to get protection against the flu. Immunization shots to guard against it are available widely at health care providers including many pharmacies. Most insurance plans pay for flu shots.

Again, the flu is serious. It killed as many as 62,000 Americans last winter. You need not face the double threat of COVID-19 and the flu, however.

Get your flu shot as soon as possible — to protect both yourself and your loved ones.
