Will having the flu make me more susceptible to COVID-19?

Who should get the flu vaccine?
People ages 6 months and older should get the flu vaccine as directed by their health care providers. Talk with your doctor if you have any concerns about the vaccine.
How does the flu vaccine work?
LOLS10在线直播下注The flu vaccine causes antibodies to develop in the body. These antibodies provide protection against the influenza virus infection.
It generally takes two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in your body. In the meantime, you are still at risk for getting the flu, which is why we recommend vaccination as early as possible.
Why do I need to get vaccinated every year?
LOLS10在线直播下注Flu viruses change from year to year, which means you can get the flu more than once in your lifetime. A vaccine that provides protection from one strain of the virus may not protect you against a new strain of the virus the following year.
Are there alternatives to the flu shot?
The nasal spray vaccine may be an option for healthy, non-pregnant, non-immunocompromised patients between ages 2 and 49.
Can I get the flu vaccine when I'm sick?
You should not get the flu vaccine if you are experiencing a moderate to severe illness with a fever. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions.
