CDC Confirms New Reports of Human Infections with Flu Viruses from Pigs  
CDC has confirmed two more human infections with flu viruses that usually spread in pigs, for a total of seven such reports during 2022. Sporadic reports of people being infected with flu viruses that usually spread in pigs happen each year, many happening in people who have attended agricultural fairs that have pigs. CDC recommends people take precautions in settings where pigs may be present.

Get Your Flu Vaccine, Ideally by the End of October 
Timing, intensity, and severity of the upcoming flu season cannot be predicted, but flu vaccination remains the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones against flu and its potentially serious outcomes. For most people who need only one dose of flu vaccine for the season, September and October are generally good times to be vaccinated against flu.

You Can Get Flu Vaccine and COVID-19 Vaccine at the Same Time 

You can get a flu vaccine and a COVID-19 vaccine at the same time if you are eligible and the timing coincides. While both vaccines can be given at the same visit, people should follow the recommended schedule for either vaccine: If you haven’t gotten your currently recommended doses of COVID-19 vaccine, get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you can and ideally, get a flu vaccine by the end of October.
