Week of 09.27.21-10.01.21
With another flu season upon us and amid the continued threat of the COVID-19 pandemic, Americans
are advised to keep their guard up and to receive vaccinations for both viruses. While the 2020-2021
season saw an historically low number of flu cases – likely the result of COVID-19 precautions –
medical experts are concerned flu cases will rebound and could surpass pre-COVID-19 numbers this
year as many have begun returning to in-person and indoor gatherings. Individuals may have concerns
about one or both vaccines (the COVID-19 and flu vaccines) which may lead some to avoid one or both
vaccines and open themselves to the risks of infection from COVID-19, the flu, or both.
