Getting a flu shot this fall is more important than ever! Reduce your risk of flu and help prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed by patients with the flu or coronavirus, as both can have a serious impact on Veterans and employees. Anyone can get sick, and flu and COVID-19 can each lead to severe illness, hospitalization and even death.

Get a flu shot, wash your hands, practice physical distancing, and wear a face covering to prevent the spread of both the flu and COVID-19. Visit www.prevention.va.gov/flu
