The standard 2020-2021 vaccine provides protection against four flu viruses, including H3N2 and H1N1.
“With so much focus on COVID-19 this year, it’s important not to lose sight of influenza and the importance of getting your annual vaccination. The flu vaccine helps keep you and your community protected. Now more than ever, this protection is critical,” said Thompson Health Director of Infection Prevention Kristen Bloom.
This year there is a high-dose flu vaccine for those 65 and older. This contains additional antigen designed to create a stronger immune response in the person getting the vaccine. The high-dose vaccine protects against four flu viruses and will be available in limited quantities at the clinics and at Canandaigua Medical Group Pharmacy, 335 Parrish St. in Canandaigua, as well as through a number of primary care physicians.
