Q.

Flu vaccine

With all the worry and concern with COVID-19, how safe is it to go to a nursing sister at the pharmacy to get the flu vaccine? Can one be sure that the nurse has not come into contact with someone that may be positive with the Coronavirus? Please advise.

Hi Bruce

Well, you wont be able to know for sure, but if you as well as the nurse take the necessary precautions, then it is still better to go for the flu vaccine than not to go. Good luck and stay safe!
