(9-23-20) The Mercer County Health District (MCHD) will be offering many opportunities to get the 2020 flu vaccine. While it is not possible to say with certainty what will happen in the fall and winter, CDC believes it is likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both be spreading. In this context, getting a flu vaccine will be more important than ever. It is also encouraged to get the flu shot early this year, because it may be necessary to wait for a specifying length of time after getting the flu shot before someone can get the COVID-19 vaccine.
