Get ready for the 2020 Flu Season

This year there will be a mega-campaign against the flu amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Think mass immunization drives in the parking lots and at supermarkets. Why? Health officials are concerned about people with the flu overburdening the health care system in the middle of the pandemic. Doctor's offices and emergency rooms are usually flooded with flu patients in a normal year, and this year, people who would normally just let the flu take its course at home will likely be seeking health care, as the flu shares several symptoms with COVID-19. So get your flu shot early! Read or listen to the story at NPR here.
