2020-21 flu season and the benefits of the flu vaccination

A yearly flu vaccine is recommended for everyone 6 months and older – even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Getting a flu vaccine every year is the best way to help prevent flu and its serious complications like hospitalizations. For children, getting an annual flu vaccine can even be lifesaving.

While it’s not possible to say for certain what will happen this fall and winter, CDC believes it’s likely that flu viruses and the coronavirus (COVID-19) will both be spreading. (Yes, you can get sick with COVID-19 and flu at the same time).

Even though getting a flu vaccine will not protect you against COVID-19, the vaccine can still reduce your risk of becoming seriously ill from flu and even dying from it. In addition, getting your flu vaccine will also help keep you out of the hospital, leaving the beds for COVID-19 patients and others who need them.

Benefits of Flu Vaccination

Getting the flu vaccine every year is very important, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Getting the flu vaccine can:

  • Keep you from getting sick with flu.
  • Help you and your family members reduce your risk of serious flu illness and flu-related complications, including hospitalization and death.*
  • Help protect people around you, including those who are more vulnerable to serious flu illness and flu-related complications due to age and/or certain chronic health conditions.
  • Protect women during and after pregnancy.
