“A flu shot is the best way to protect your health and the health of those around you during the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Columbus Public Health Commissioner Dr. Mysheika Roberts. “Getting a flu shot also will help prevent our hospitals from being overrun with flu cases so they can focus on those who are sick and fighting COVID-19.”

According to Columbus Public Health, in addition to the flu vaccine, you also can protect your health and those around you by wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet apart, washing your hands, covering your cough, and staying home if you are sick.
