2020 Flu Shot Clinics

Oregon Health Authority (OHA) today issued a statewide news release and media kit urging everyone six months and older to get an annual flu shot now, especially as COVID-19 cases increase in Oregon and the pandemic persists. 
 
While it is unclear how the pandemic will affect the flu season, OHA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are preparing for COVID-19 and seasonal flu to spread at the same time. A “twindemic” of two potentially fatal viruses circulating at the same time could burden the state’s health care system and result in many illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths. Getting a flu vaccine is something easy people can do to protect themselves and their loved ones and help reduce the spread of flu this fall and winter. 
 
Flu vaccine will not protect against COVID-19. But vaccination has many other benefits and is part of a comprehensive public health strategy to reduce the burden of flu. Here are some benefits:
 
  • The vaccine is proven to help protect pregnant women and people with chronic health conditions while reducing the burden of flu on our communities and health care system. 
  • This year, especially, it will be most important to protect those at higher risk for flu complications. Many of these people are also at high risk for COVID-19 illness or serious outcomes.  
  • It is also important for caregivers and essential workers to protect themselves and those around them from flu by getting a flu vaccine.
  • The flu vaccine may take up to two weeks to become effective, so getting it earlier in the season – like now – is ideal. Flu vaccine is available from health care providers, local health departments and many pharmacies. The vaccine is free or low cost with most health insurance plans. To find flu vaccine clinic, visit http://www.flu.oregon.gov/ and use OHA’s flu vaccine locator tool.
