Coronavirus cases continue to rise during a surge of the Delta variant, and some may forget the country is heading into flu season as well.
Each year influenza causes millions to be sick, hundreds of thousands to be hospitalized and tens of thousands of deaths.
Now is the time to be vaccinated for influenza according to the CDC.
According to the CDC, the best time to receive the vaccine is by the end of October.
The agency said people can be vaccinated from both flu and COVID-19 at the same time because you can also catch both viruses at the same time.
