A Note from Our Nurse
Flu vaccine during Covid-19 pandemic
Health professionals are encouraging everyone to get the flu vaccine especially this year. At this writing, we do not know the effect of a dual diagnosis of Covid-19 and the seasonal flu might be on a person’s body. The flu vaccine takes up to two weeks to reach peak effectiveness. It takes two weeks for antibodies to develop and protect us from the seasonal flu. So getting the vaccine in September or October will help provide the best protection for the flu season. Flu vaccination should still be offered throughout the flu season, even into January or later. CDC recommends for all people 6 months and older get a flu vaccine every year. We have Seward local providers that have the flu vaccine available now.
