Missouri’s flu season could be far worse than normal this time around. Last year, flu cases were virtually nonexistent in Missouri because many people were wearing masks, keeping their distance from others, and staying home more. Lisa Cox, communications director for the state Department of Health and Senior Services, recommends Missourians get their flu vaccination soon.
Cox says you can get a coronavirus and flu vaccination at the same time. She says both shots are highly recommended for pregnant women, those with a weaker immune system, the elderly, and young kids.
