Flu Shots to Avoid “Twindemic”?

September 17, 2020

 

 

Experts Warn of a Possible ‘Twindemic’— Here’s What That Means

 

 

“Twindemic” is a new term that refers to the possibility of a severe flu season coinciding with a surge in COVID-19 cases. It is worrying especially with an expected “second wave” of COVID-19 cases in the fall and winter.

 

Even a mild flu season is concerning and puts a strain on the healthcare system.

 

“We don’t need an epidemic in the midst of a pandemic, producing a twindemic,”

 

 

Can Flu Shots Avoid Twindemic?

 

 

Experts stress the importance of getting your flu shot:

 

“People should definitely get the flu vaccine because the last thing they need is to get COVID-19 and the flu,”

 

“It’s one of the viruses we can do something about.”

 

On top of that, the symptoms for flu and COVID-19 will be challenging for doctors to distinguish one from the other.

 

 

 

Flu Can Make Patients More Vulnerable to Severe COVID-19

 

 

If you catch the flu, your immune system goes down, and the chance of getting COVID-19 goes way up.

 

Flu can make patients more vulnerable to severe COVID-19. Coming down with both viruses at once could be disastrous.

 

 

 

So Get Flu Vaccination As Early As You Can!
