YHD News Release – COVID-19 Bivalent Booster and the Flu Vaccine Important This Fall

Click the following links for Yakima Health District (YHD) news releases in English and Spanish about the importance of receiving the COVID-19 Bivalent Booster and Flu Vaccine before the holidays.

Flu activity in recent years has been low due to community-wide preventative measures and COVID-19 precautions that have been in place, YHD notes. However, in Yakima County, cases of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and flu were reported in mid-September. This is earlier than the normal start of the flu season, which usually begins in October.
