FLU FAQs

The flu vaccine is recommended every year for everyone six months old and older.

The flu vaccine helps protect you and the people around you. Having more people vaccinated provides more protection for the community.

Flu and COVID-19 are both contagious respiratory illnesses, but they are caused by different viruses.

Some of the symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are similar, and they can both result in serious illness. It is possible to get the flu and COVID-19 at the same time.

Testing will determine if your symptoms are caused by the flu or COVID-19.

No. However, flu vaccines reduce your risk of flu illness, hospitalization and death.

FLU MYTH VS FACT

MYTH

The vaccine can give you the flu.

FACT

Flu vaccines are made with inactivated viruses and cannot cause flu illness.

The best time to be vaccinated is September and October, but as long as flu is still in your area, you can gain protection.
