This Is Your Shot: Getting the Flu Shot in 2020
This year, your flu shot is more important than ever.
Flu viruses and the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 will both spread from person-to-person in the months ahead, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But you can take steps to protect yourself, your family, and your community from the flu with your annual flu shot.
Though there is no vaccine for COVID-19, the flu vaccine is a safe and effective way to prevent contracting the flu and spreading it to others during the COVID-19 pandemic. At UPMC, we offer convenient options for getting your yearly flu shot.
