The Board of Health is sponsoring a Family Flu Clinic (ages 3 years old and up) for Blackstone Residents next week. Last month, we posted about the Flu Clinic for adults but this time around its for the entire family.
Prevent Flu This Fall and Winter
It’s likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both spread this fall and winter. Healthcare systems could be overwhelmed treating both patients with flu and patients with COVID-19. This means getting a flu vaccine during 2020-2021 is more important than ever.
While getting a flu vaccine will not protect against COVID-19, there are many important benefits, such as:
- Flu vaccines have been shown to reduce the risk of flu illness, hospitalization, and death.
- Getting a flu vaccine can also save healthcare resources for the care of patients with COVID-19.
