CDPH Urges Californians to Receive Flu Shot

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) continues to urge Californians to receive the influenza (flu) vaccine to protect your health and the health of others, particularly with the holiday season underway and people visiting family and friends. For Californians who still have not received the COVID-19 vaccine or are due for their booster, the flu vaccine and COVID-19 vaccine can be administered in the same sitting.

Influenza is increasing around the country, according to CDPH, especially among young adults and children. CDPH recommends the annual flu vaccination for everyone six months of age and older and getting vaccinated against the flu is especially important for people at high-risk of severe disease and hospitalization.
