Twindemic is more likely this year. Get flu shot in one arm and COVID vax in the other, recommends doctor

UCI Health Family Health Centers [director and] physician Dr. José Mayorga talks about why it’s important to get a flu shot this fall. … Kids are the ones that tend to be the spreaders of many viruses, including colds and the flu. So I definitely am going to encourage my patients, and even my own children, to get the vaccine. … I really want people to get this vaccine against the flu. … If you show up to my office, and you’re feeling like you have the flu, I [would] love to know that you have the vaccine because it helps me from a medical decision standpoint.”
