Flu Season Joins COVID as Concerns for Winter Months

While COVID-19 continues to be a concern with new variants developing, the upcoming Flu Season also has Healthcare Professionals concerned.

Lynne Yaggy, VP/Chief Nursing Officer with Cox Medical Center Branson, says during a Monday interview on KRZK's "Ozarks Now" that with people relaxing their routines on handwashing and sanitizing, a strong resurgence of the flu is possible. Yaggy says that flu cases were down substantially last year due to increased awareness of hygiene because of the COVID-19 outbreak. 

Yaggy also says that in most cases, Flu and COVID Vaccines can be taken at the same time but does recommend individuals consult their own doctors for the best course of action.
