Seasonal Flu Shots

The Camden County Department of Health and Human Services recommends everyone get a flu shot this flu season, especially children and seniors who are most vulnerable. The flu shots are provided for no-out-of-pocket cost. Getting an annual flu vaccine this fall is very important to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community against flu. Vaccination is especially important for people who are at higher risk of developing serious flu complications, for example people of any age with a chronic condition like a breathing or lung problem, heart disease, or a weakened immune system.

Because some symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are similar, people may need to be tested to tell what virus is causing their illness. People can be infected with both a flu virus and the virus that causes COVID-19 at the same time. In general, COVID-19 seems to spread more easily than flu and causes more serious illnesses in some people. Compared with people who have flu infections, people who have COVID-19 can take longer to show symptoms and be contagious for longer.

Important Flu Season Information

  • While we may not know what might happen this upcoming flu season, relaxing COVID-19 protective measures can likely result in the reprise of flu season. 
  • Reduced population immunity due to lack of flu virus activity since March 2020 could result in an early and possibly severe flu season. Also, co-spread of flu, COVID-19 and other respiratory viruses like RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) could place a renewed high strain on the health care system. 
  • During 2019–2020, nearly 200 flu deaths in children were reported to CDC in the United States. About 80% of those children were not vaccinated against flu. Flu can be serious for kids, and a flu vaccine is the best way to protect your kids from flu.
