Flu 2020

 

Prevent the flu: Get vaccinated every year 

With COVID-19 also affecting our community, the flu vaccine is more important this year than ever. Influenza, commonly called “the flu,” is a viral infection of the respiratory tract that may cause symptoms very similar to those of COVID-19.

Everyone six months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every season.
Flu vaccine is provided at many local health departments, private health care providers, and pharmacies across Illinois. Contact your health care provider to find out which flu vaccine is right for you. Find vaccine locations at vaccinefinder.org.
