This fall and winter, the combined presence of the flu, COVID-19, and RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) viruses will put everyone at a greater risk of contracting one or more potentially serious respiratory diseases.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention forecasted several scenarios for this fall and winter, including a potential “tripledemic” where the flu, COVID-19, and RSV simultaneously peak.
No matter your age or health status, vaccination is the best way to protect yourself and your community against these illnesses. Hansford County Hospital District, along with the CDC and top health experts, recommends everyone over the age of six months receive the flu vaccine and an updated COVID-19 booster, and that adults over the age of 60 receive the RSV vaccine.
Hansford County Hospital District encourages everyone over the age of six months to get their flu shot, and the Family Medical Clinic makes it easy, with appointment hours available Monday – Friday, from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
