Don’t let myths or questions keep you from getting a flu shot this year. Learn the truth and get your vaccine to protect yourself, your loved ones and your community! Isn’t it worth a shot?


The vaccine can give you the flu.


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


If you don’t get the flu shot in October, it’s too late to be protected.


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


You don’t need to get a flu shot every year.


Flu immunity declines over time and the vaccine is updated annually, so a shot is required every year.


The flu is not dangerous.


Thousands die from the flu every year. The young, elderly or those with compromised immune systems are especially at risk.


Getting vaccinated guarantees you won’t get the flu.


Even after a flu shot, you may still get sick, but the illness is likely to be milder than it would without a shot.


You can't get your flu shot and your COVID-19 vaccine on the same day.


It's safe to get your flu shot and COVID-19 vaccine on the same day.


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.

If you have any of the following symptoms, call your primary care provider. They can help you determine if it is the flu or COVID-19.

  • fever or feeling feverish/chills
  • cough
  • sore throat
  • runny or stuffy nose
  • muscle or body aches
  • headaches
  • fatigue (tiredness)
  • some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults.
