You’ve served your country, now help fight the flu by getting a shot. Getting a flu shot helps protect you and your family, loved ones and community from getting sick with the flu. With COVID-19, getting a flu shot is even more important this year for protecting your health.
“Last flu season, 27,000 Veterans were treated at VA for the flu and another 4,600 were hospitalized. With COVID-19 also circulating, you definitely don’t want to get both at the same time,” said Dr. Mark Upton. Upton is Acting Assistant Under Secretary for Health for Community Care.
