Influenza Vaccine

The best protection against influenza virus is immunization.  

Health care providers play an important role in preventing the spread of influenza and promoting the benefits of influenza vaccine.   

“To help prevent the spread of influenza, health care providers can:

  • receive influenza vaccine themselves to help prevent transmitting influenza to their patients
  • use every opportunity to administer the flu vaccine to people at risk, even after influenza activity has been documented in the community
  • discuss the risks and benefits of the flu vaccine with patients, as well as the risks of not being vaccinated
  • teach patients about public health measures to reduce and prevent the spread of influenza and COVID-19
  • inform patients that symptoms of influenza and COVID-19 are similar and what to do if they start to develop symptoms”*
