Doctors recommend getting flu shot by September, October as second COVID wave looms

Is it time to start thinking about the flu shot?

Health professionals say that the flu shot will be even more important this year, as flu season works with what could time out to be a second wave of the Novel Coronavirus.


As doctors brace for illnesses with similar symptoms – it could overwhelm hospitals if the viruses spread at the same time.

“This has really been a marathon. Come September or October, people may feel very fatigued from having to do all this. Because they’re respiratory viruses, we need to continue to do this and remain vigilant so we can limit the spread of either virus come the fall,” said Dr. Maryrose Laguio-Vila, speaking with 13WHAM. She’s an infectious disease physician with Rochester Regional Health.

Doctors say getting the flu shot by September or October is a good idea.
