Roll Your #SleeveUp to #FightFlu
Public health officials in Illinois urge everyone to get a flu vaccine
“There is the potential that people could become co-infected with both flu and COVID-19,” said IDPH Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike. “Although a COVID-19 vaccine is still being developed and tested, we do have a vaccine to combat this season’s anticipated flu viruses. I want to challenge everyone to roll their #SleeveUp and show us you that you’ve received your flu shot and are committed to protect those around you.”
Wearing a mask, washing your hands often, getting a flu vaccine, and watching your distance are four simple actions that everyone, especially people at higher risk of developing serious flu complications, should take to help reduce the spread of flu.
• Lather Up: Wash your hands frequently with soap and water.
• Sleeve Up: Roll up your sleeve to get a flu shot.
• Back Up: Keep 6 feet of distance between you and others.
