Medical professionals, including the Alaska Nurses Association, are recommending that everyone 6 months and older get a flu shot by the end of October. Keeping Alaska’s flu case count low is critical as we battle COVID-19.
Wearing a mask and washing your hands is proven to minimize the spread of both COVID-19 and the flu. While it’s important to know the differences between flu and COVID-19 symptoms, it’s vital to get tested for both so you can begin the proper treatment.
