"In the past, we scheduled indoor flu shot clinics in several communities and they were often crowded spaces", said Cindy Shaughnessy, RN, PHN, Le Sueur County Public Health Director.

To that end, hospital chains and public health systems are working to get as many people vaccinated as possible.

Leading by example, Mayor John Tory, the City's Medical Officer of Health, Doctor Eileen de Villa, and Board of Health Chair Joe Cressy, are all rolling up their sleeves to get their flu shot on Thursday morning. Getting vaccinated will also help reduce the spread of influenza in our communities and help reduce the impact on the health-care system in the event of a potential surge of COVID-19 cases.

"We heard about the opportunity and we're excited to be able to do that". Contracting flu virus and COVID-19 concurrently increases the risk of serious health complications.
