COVID-19 Vaccination and the Flu Shot – Fall is the time to get vaccinated against influenza. 

That’s true whether you got the COVID-19 vaccine or didn’t. Flu season last year was nowhere near as bad as feared, in large part because people wore masks and stayed home, said Dr. Tim Hendrix, medical director for AdventHealth’s Centra Care, calling it the “flu season that wasn’t.” 2021 is expected to be different. “We’re going to see more flu, but it’s anybody’s guess how bad it will be,” Hendrix said. “I want to urge everybody to get the flu shot. Be as safe as possible.”
