Flu season is around the corner and regional officials will gather tomorrow morning to discuss the importance of the annual vaccination.
“During the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever that everyone do their part to help prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses like flu,” a press release said.
The meeting, which begins tomorrow (Sept. 17) at 9.m., will include speeches from Fairfax County officials who encourage members of the public to receive their yearly flu vaccinations, according to a press release.
Those who want to watch the event are invited to do so virtually via Facebook Live.
A recent Tysons Reporter poll said that almost 20% of 494 respondents have already gotten their flu shot for the year while another 66% of respondents that they plan to do so soon.
“Getting a flu shot will help prevent unnecessary illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths and will protect frontline health care workers and conserve scarce medical resources needed to care for COVID-19 patients,” a press release said.
Attendees at tomorrow’s event will likely include:
- City of Falls Church Mayor David Tarter
- Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Jeffrey McKay
- President and CEO of Inova Health System Dr. Stephen Jones
- Town of Vienna Mayor Linda Colbert
