“Everyone’s focused on COVID and that’s great. But we still have to remember that this is flu season. And we have to make sure that the whole county is protected against any eventuality. That’s why we’re offering both flu and COVID boosters to make sure that everyone is as protected as they can be coming winter,” says Wash. Co. health department’s director of nursing, Angie Rarey.
