This season, a flu vaccine is more important than ever to reduce the risk of flu for yourself, your family and your community. It can also reduce the burden of flu illness on the health care system and save medical resources to care for people with COVID-19.

Getting a flu vaccine is especially important for essential workers who have frequent interactions with the public, which can put them at higher risk for being exposed to flu.
