Doctor and Patient

At Quartz, we care about keeping you safe and healthy. Public health officials have a clear message this year. Get a flu vaccine. Get it early.

Why a Flu Vaccine is Important

Most people who get seasonal flu get better without serious problems. Yet, it can be deadly. Last flu season, 490,000 people in the U.S. were hospitalized and 34,200 people died. A flu vaccine will help protect you and your loved ones while reducing the burden on health systems caring for COVID-19 patients. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone six months and older get a flu vaccine with rare exceptions. Learn more
