What you need to know about vaccines as cold and flu season gets closer

During Governor Justice’s briefing today, Doctor Clay Marsh, the chancellor for WVU health sciences, gave an update on important vaccines as we get closer to cold and flu season.

He said it is important for people to get the new vaccine that targets RSV, especially for infants and adults over 60.

The new flu shot is also important for everyone.

Marsh also gave an update on COVID cases. Numbers are beginning to increase but not as significantly as they did at the peak of the pandemic.

“We are looking forward to getting our new COVID shots that should be available at the end of this month,” Marsh said. “This shot is directed against the newest and latest common forms of COVID-19 that are circulating.”

You should still monitor symptoms, like a sore throat, runny nose, and some loss of taste and smell.
