Get your flu shot this year.
Getting a flu shot is always a good idea. And with fewer people wearing masks this flu season, it’s even more important. Why? Because you want to protect yourself from the flu virus and COVID at the same time.

How can I prevent the flu?
Getting a flu shot each year is the best way to prevent the flu. You can also avoid the flu (and other bugs, too) by taking these simple steps:
- Wash your hands often with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds
- Use hand sanitizer when handwashing isn’t an option
- Don’t touch your eyes, nose, and mouth (until you’ve washed your hands)
- Avoid crowds and close contact with those who are sick
Protect yourself by practicing good health habits, too, like:
- Eating a well-balanced diet
- Getting enough sleep
- Staying physically active
- Managing your stress
- Cleaning and disinfecting highly touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially if someone is sick
