Dr. Leana Wen, the former health commissioner of Baltimore, said the flu shot doesn’t protect people from coronavirus — but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get it.

“The flu, influenza is a separate virus from coronavirus,” she told CNN. “And so getting the flu shot does not protect you from getting coronavirus — but it does protect you from getting the flu, which is important because there have been over — there have been tens of thousands of deaths from influenza this season in the US.”

Wen urged Americans who have not get gotten a flu shot to get it now. Older people and those with chronic conditions should also consider getting the pneumonia vaccine.
