National Influenza Vaccination Week

Authored on

The Santa Barbara County Public Health Department wants to remind everyone that there is still time to get vaccinated against flu and be protected as the season continues. Since COVID-19 and flu could spread simultaneously this winter, flu vaccination during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic can help reduce the overall burden of respiratory disease and save medical resources for the care of COVID-19 patients. It is important to note that flu vaccines are designed to protect against flu, and COVID-19 vaccines are designed to protect against COVID-19.
