Every year, like clockwork, the unwelcome guest named “Influenza” shows up on our doorstep. We’ve already got a visitor that has long overstayed their welcome - COVID-19.
At times COVID is invisible, jumping quickly from host to host but leaving little evidence of its infectious passing. Sometimes it leaves behind small signs: a sniffle, a tickle in the throat. At other times though, COVID-19 signals its arrival by causing fever, chills, muscle aches, sore throat, cough, and fatigue.
Unfortunately, those are also the symptoms of the flu.
September's Topic of the Month covers:
- how the flu shot can keep you from needing COVID-19 testing,
- how the shot can protect you, even if it's not a perfect match for the virus,
- who shouldn't get the vaccine, and why most everyone else should,
- where to find information on the difference between allergies, colds, the flu, and COVID-19.

Remember - we have a whole library of newsletters that cover topics from "sleep hygiene" to "the dark side of clean eating" and a whole lot more.
