BREAKING NEWS – The Seasonal Flu Shot Helps With COVID-19

Mark Sunshine

Posted in ,

Congratulations on surviving election day!! 

While voting is behind us, COVID-19 remains a threat to our health. 

Fortunately, I have some good news to tell you about. 

The seasonal flu shot can provide some protection against the most severe effects of COVID-19. 

While flu shots do not appear to prevent COVID-19, there is emerging evidence that it helps reduce COVID-19 severity. 

COVID-19 patients who got a flu shot are much less likely to be hospitalized or end up in an ICU.

Statistics show that COVID-19 patients who did not get a flu shot are 2.4 times more likely to be admitted to a hospital and, if hospitalization is needed, 3.3 times more likely to be transferred to an ICU. 

Doctors do not know why flu shots shield patients from the most severe COVID-19 symptoms, but for now, that isn’t important.  

I got my flu shot about a week ago at Publix.  My visit to the Publix pharmacy was quick and painless.  

Even better, Publix paid me $10 to get the shot. 

Imagine that, getting paid $10 to do something that keeps me healthy and I should do anyway. 

So, please, if you haven’t already gotten your flu shot, do it today.
