Flu season is here, and it’s important to stay healthy. There’s a new kind of sickness called Eris-EG5, and it’s like the flu and COVID combined. To stay safe, it’s really important to get vaccines for both the flu and COVID. These vaccines make your body strong and help keep you from getting really sick.
Even though we hear a lot about COVID, the flu is still a big problem. It has similar symptoms to COVID, so it’s hard to tell them apart. If you get the flu shot, you can stay healthier and help providers take care of everyone better. And it’s not just about you – when you get vaccinated, you also protect people you care about who could get really sick.
Scientists say that COVID vaccines still work against the Eris-EG5 kind of COVID. But it’s also a good idea to get boosters to make sure you stay safe. These shots help your body fight off Eris-EG5 and keep you from getting very sick.
So, what should you do? Get vaccinated! Make a plan to get your flu and COVID vaccines. The providers and nurses at Henry J. Austin Health Center (HJAHC) can help you stay safe. They know a lot about vaccines and want to help you stay healthy. Remember to listen to experts like the CDC and providers when you make decisions about your health.
