While the spread of COVID-19 makes headlines, we're also on the verge of flu season and doctors are concerned about battling both at the same time.

There are already signs influenza could be a much bigger problem this year. It's time to get your flu shot. That message is getting overshadowed by the push to get more people vaccinated against COVID-19.

Dr. Todd Fristo, family medicine physician at Saint Luke's Physician Group, talks about the importance of the flu vaccine this year. 

To get your flu shot you can make an appointment with your primary care physician or visit a Saint Luke's Convenient Care near you.
