Immunization Resources

It’s not too late to protect yourself this holiday season. Influenza (Flu), Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) and COVID-19 cases are on the rise, but you can still get vaccinated.

About RSV
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a common respiratory virus that usually causes mild, cold-like symptoms. However, it can be dangerous for babies, toddlers, and older adults.

This year, CDC has recommended multiple, new immunizations to protect those most at risk of getting very sick with RSV: infants, toddlers, and adults 60 years and older.

About Influenza
Influenza (flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs. Some people, such as people 65 years and older, young children, and people with certain health conditions, are at higher risk of serious flu complications.  There are two main types of influenza (flu) viruses: types A and B. The influenza A and B viruses that routinely spread in people (human influenza viruses) are responsible for seasonal flu epidemics each year.

The best way to reduce the risk of flu and its potentially serious complications is by getting vaccinated each year.

About COVID-19
COVID-19 is still around and poses a threat to the health of New Yorkers. COVID-19 testing, treatment and vaccination will remain available for New Yorkers. This includes people who do not have insurance or the ability to pay.

Everyone should stay up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations, get tested if they have symptoms or have been exposed, and wear a high-quality mask when sick, following an exposure and when COVID-19 levels increase.
