Will a flu shot protect me from COVID-19?
While the flu and COVID-19 share some symptoms, they are caused by different viruses. So a flu shot will not protect you from COVID-19. Still, it can help protect you from the flu—or from serious illness if you do get the flu.
Isn't it too late to get a flu shot?
While it's ideal to get your flu shot in the fall, before the flu starts spreading, it's not too late to get it now. Flu activity typically peaks between December and February, but it can last through May. So you may still get some protection if you get a shot now.
Keep in mind: Children 6 months to 8 years old who have not had a flu shot before need two doses given at least four weeks apart. So the sooner they start, the better.
Should I get a flu shot if I have COVID-19?
No. You should wait to get your flu shot until you feel better and your doctor says it's safe to go out.
Where I can get my flu shot?
Check with your local pharmacy or doctor's office. You can also go to VaccineFinder.org to find the location nearest you.
