Protect yourself and others with a flu shot this year during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic

Protect yourself and others with a flu shot this year during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic

The normal flu season, which takes place October through April, may be different this year given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Public health experts say the combination of the two viruses spreading and causing illness has the potential to become a public health crisis, making it important to take steps to slow the spread of both. This includes distancing from others, avoiding crowds, wearing a mask in public, washing hands, and cleaning often-used surfaces. While clinical trials are underway for a COVID-19 vaccine, the flu vaccine is readily available. "The best prevention against the flu is receiving a flu vaccination,” says Dr. Jim Polo, Regence’s executive medical director. “Regence covers flu shots at 100% for most members and that means there’ll be no cost share or out-of-pocket expenses to receive appropriate vaccination.”
