The 2020-21 flu season is well under way, and extra caution is emphasized due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic (CDC). It’s not too late to build awareness and to take action to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community from spreading respiratory illness. Take a look at the following influenza information resources from NLM and beyond to learn and share with others. Spread health information, not germs!
