The “Be POWERflu” prevention campaign is meant to reduce the number of flu cases and prevent serious related illness during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone older than 6 months receive a flu shot every year.
Reducing the number of flu cases will also reduce the number of flu-related hospitalizations, which in turn will help keep hospital rooms available for those being treated for COVID-19 infections and other serious illnesses.
