The United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has urged all people who are recommended to receive the flu vaccine to be immunized to help reduce symptoms that might be confused with COVID-19 and to reduce the overall burden on the healthcare system over the fall and winter. This report contained updated information for seniors.  The CDC recommends seniors recieve the FluZone high-dose quadrivalent (four-strain), and the other is Fluad Quadrivalent.
