Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has appealed to Ohioans to get out and get the flu vaccine as being critical to do so this year.
“Please get out and get your flu vaccine. I cannot stress enough how critically important it is this year,” Governor Mike DeWine said at the weekly Covid19 briefing.
“While the flu can be deadly on its own, we also are concerned that Ohioans who get both the flu and COVID19 at the same time could become severely, if not fatally, ill. Anyone who can get vaccinated against the flu should do so.”
“If you are elderly and need help getting to your physician or a location that offers flu shots, we encourage older Ohioans to contact their local Area Agency on Agency at
He said the elderly in need of help can be connected “with resources in your area for transportation and other services.”
