HOW DOES THE FLU VACCINE BENEFIT ME?
• Best way to avoid getting the flu
• Reduces missed work and school due to the flu

FLU AND COVID-19 ARE NOT THE SAME
Flu is a different disease than COVID-19. Influenza, also called flu, is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It is not the same as the common cold, which is caused by different viruses. It is not COVID-19, which is also caused by a different virus. However, symptoms of the flu can be similar to early symptoms of COVID-19. Protect yourself and the people you care about by getting a flu shot. More information: www.sccphd.org/flu
