Ralph Riviello, MD, MS, FACEP, chair of emergency medicine at UT Health San Antonio and University Hospital, discusses how both organizations are preparing for flu season in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
One of the easiest ways to prepare is by getting your flu shot this season.
The flu vaccine can reduce symptoms that could be confused with COVID-19. The flu vaccine can also decrease the severity of the illness, reduce hospitalizations, protect pregnant women and save lives of children and adults.
Flu shots are available at every UT Health primary care location in San Antonio and the hill country. Schedule your flu shot at a primary care office near you.
