As fall approaches in 2020, it is even more important than previous years for patients to receive the influenza vaccine. The CDC believes that influenza and Covid-19 will both be spreading in the fall and winter of 2020. For this project, educational pages were designed for display in patient exam rooms at Milton Family Practice in Milton, Vermont. Information included the symptom overlap of Covid-19 and influenza, the distinct features of Covid-19, an epidemiological comparison of 2019 influenza statistics vs. Covid-19 statistics, and an emphasis on the importance of getting a flu shot to prevent a dangerous co-infection with both viruses.
