Flu season is here, and this year – amid the COVID-19 pandemic - it’s more important than ever to get a flu shot.

Schedule your flu shot – it’s quick and easy. Call 1-866-TIDELANDS today.

The CDC recommends nearly everyone 6 months of age and older receive the flu shot, which is the single-best way to protect yourself from the flu. Receiving a flu shot makes it less likely that you’ll become ill and, even if you do, it can help reduce the severity of your symptoms.

This year, as our community and nation continue to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s even more vital to proactively protect yourself from the flu by receiving a flu shot.

The CDC believes people can contract both the flu and COVID-19 at the same time, potentially leading to more severe symptoms. If you become ill, receiving a flu shot can also help simplify your diagnosis because the symptoms of COVID-19 and flu overlap.

Plus, by getting a flu shot, you can help limit the overall spread of the flu in our community and help prevent health care providers from being overwhelmed by a surge of flu and COVID-19 cases.

Do the right thing for yourself, your family and our community. Schedule your flu shot today by calling 1-866-TIDELANDS. And make sure to continue practicing COVID-19 safety precautions such as wearing a mask, washing your hands regularly and practicing social distancing, all of which can also help limit the spread of the flu.

If you start to notice flu-like symptoms such as cough, sore throat, body aches or nausea, avoid contact with others and contact your health care provider or 1-866-TIDELANDS.
