CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (Sept. 30, 2020) Hospitalman Brandon Burt administers an influenza vaccination to Hospitalman Edward Roy during a flu shot standdown at Navy Medicine Readiness and Training Command Corpus Christi. Impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have stressed the importance of the flu vaccine, and while the COVID-19 and influenza viruses are different, symptoms of the two can look the same, making it difficult to differentiate the two based on symptoms alone. Getting a flu shot now could help reduce the overall impact of contagious respiratory illnesses on the population and decrease the burden on the health care system during the overlapping flu season and COVID-19 pandemic.
