December 6-12 is National Influenza Vaccination Week

The Kendall County Health Department reminds residents that there is still time to schedule a flu shot. This week has been designated National Influenza Vaccination Week. The need for a flu shot is even more important this year due to the presence of coronavirus. The health department warns that flu and COVID-19 each can cause serious respiratory illness and co-infection could possibly lead to more severe illnesses, hospitalization, and even death.

To find locations to get a flu shot in your community, check with your health care provider or use the online Vaccine Finder at VaccineFinder.org.

Everyone six months of age and older should get the seasonal flu vaccine. The vaccine is available as either a flu shot or in a nasal spray. Talk with a health care provider about what type is most appropriate for you.

In addition to getting your flu vaccine, KCHD recommends following the 3 W’s for both COVID- 19 and influenza: WASH your hands, WATCH your distance and WEAR your mask.

Viruses spread when people who are infected cough, sneeze, or talk. Flu usually comes on suddenly. Many of the symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are the same, such as fever and cough, but there are some differences. If you have symptoms of either flu or COVID-19, self-isolate and contact a health care provider.
