2020-2021 Flu Shot Information for Sansum Clinic Patients
This upcoming cold and flu season will be much different than prior years.
We are battling the global COVID-19 pandemic, for which there is currently no vaccine, and will soon have another significant virus circulating in the community: influenza or “the flu”. Influenza can cause many of the same symptoms of COVID-19 and can result in similar illness or even death. The good news is that there is a vaccine for influenza and as a result, we encourage all of our patients to get vaccinated as soon as possible to ensure protection by the time the flu season is underway.
Flu shots are particularly important this upcoming flu season to prevent patients from potentially becoming ill with both COVID-19 and influenza – especially for those at increased medical risk for severe complications should they contract flu or COVID-19.
Most flu shots are reserved for patients who get primary and speciality care at Sansum Clinic – while supplies last. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are reserving flu shots for the 2020-2021 flu season for patients of Sansum Clinic to ensure they can get vaccinated, while also following social distancing guidelines and other safety precautions to protect patients and staff.
