Flu & COVID-19

This year has been a challenging time for the Jefferson County community, and the COVID-19 pandemic has made it more important than ever for residents to do everything they can to remain as healthy as possible. As we enter flu season, JCPH encourages people to get their flu vaccine, as it is one more way to protect you and your family and give you some peace of mind.

While it’s important to get your flu shot every season, 2020 is an especially important year to get vaccinated to protect from the compounding health problems of flu and COVID-19. Having the flu and COVID-19 at the same time could make you more susceptible to serious complications, and while no one ever wants to be hospitalized, hospitalization during the novel coronavirus pandemic means facilities may be strained for resources and equipment, as well as have stricter visitation guidelines.

To help meet the need within our community for increased vaccination, JCPH is hosting vaccination clinics throughout the remainder of the year. Click here to download a schedule of upcoming clinics
