Flu/COVID-19 Vaccines Outreach: Protecting Our Communities
September 20, 2023
The flu shot season typically runs from September to December, and during this time, individuals of all ages are encouraged to get vaccinated against the influenza virus. The flu shot remains one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of the flu, reduce the severity of symptoms, and ultimately save lives.
New COVID-19 vaccines are approved and available in September. Clayton Fong, President and CEO of NAPCA encourages seniors to get the vaccine, “Getting vaccinated every year is the best way to prevent serious illness from flu and COVID-19. The people most at risk for getting very sick from these diseases are over age 65 or have health conditions like asthma, diabetes, or heart and lung disease. If you are 65-74, the risk of hospitalization is 36 times higher. The older you are, the higher your risk is. So, if you are over age 65 or have underlying condition(s), it is especially important to get the most updated vaccine.”
NAPCA is hosting the first vaccination outreach event of the season:
