You Can’t Get a COVID-19 Vaccine Yet,
But You Can Get Your Flu Shot
Because of COVID-19, some people may not care about the flu this year.
But fast approaching, and under the radar for many Americans, is the upcoming flu season. That means it's time—especially for cancer patients, their caregivers, and families—to keep wearing masks, practice social distancing, and get a flu vaccine.
According to the experts at CTCA®, don't wait. Get the vaccine now. Learn more about COVID-19, the flu, and cancer from CTCA®.
