Offer Flu Vaccines as Soon as You Have Them Available
Patients will start asking about this season's flu vaccine.
This year's vaccines will contain one new strain of each of the A and B viruses. It's likely they will provide better coverage than last year...but it's hard to predict if circulating strains will change.
Even if vaccines are a less-than-ideal match, they can still decrease the risk of getting the flu...and its severity.
