If you haven't heard, it's flu season. Get your vaccine and quiet the flu.

Getting your flu vaccine this year is especially important to stay healthy and protect our hospital system. The flu vaccine is safe, effective, and free for most people. It’s quick and easy to get the flu vaccine at your doctor’s office or a local pharmacy – and you can get your COVID-19 vaccine at the same time!


Several respiratory viruses are circulating right now, including influenza, COVID-19, and RSV. It's already a concerning season, especially for young children and older adults. As we gather with loved ones, the flu vaccine is one important way we can protect ourselves and our community while reducing stress on our health system.


Flu vaccines, which have protected people for nearly 80 years, are safe, effective, and free for most people. You can’t get the flu from the flu vaccine, but you can help protect yourself and the people you care about. If you're exposed to or get sick with the flu, the flu vaccine helps protect you from more severe symptoms, which can include hospitalization and even death.


Most health insurers (including Medicaid, Medicare, CHP+, and private insurance) cover the full cost of the flu vaccine. You can save a trip and get your next dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at the same time. It only takes a few minutes, especially if you schedule ahead.
