Variants of the virus have continued to spread across the U.S. since the start of the pandemic, and coronavirus surges are expected during each Fall and Winter. Majority of Americans have not received the updated COVID-19 vaccine and existing vaccinated groups are losing their immunity protection over time. Find ways to stay protected this season.
Flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by viruses that infect the nose, throat, and sometimes lungs. It can be mild or severe and sometimes lead to death. Children are most likely to get sick from the flu. The best way to prevent it is by getting the flu vaccine each year, which protects you from the four virus strains expected to circulate that season.
RSV is a highly contagious respiratory virus that causes cold-like symptoms. Infection can be serious for infants and older adults, as well as anyone with an underlying health condition or weakened immune system- such as cancer or congenital heart disease.
