2023: Webinars on how to stay healthy and avoid the flu and covid-19

You may be tired of hearing about influenza and Covid-19 (who isn’t?), but the reality is that the viral landscape is ever-evolving, and so there is important new information to be aware of.

CARP recently hosted four regional webinars with experts who will answer these questions and more:

  • What’s new with both flu and COVID strains and vaccines?
  • Influenza vaccine and COVID vaccine and boosters: when to get them and how long do they last?
  • Information on the latest NACI recommended high dose vaccine for most of our members (65+)
  • Flu outbreaks and COVID outbreaks. Protecting yourself from both. What to do if you are infected?
  • What is the current best practice and why does the advice seem to be changing regularly?
  • Dispelling myths and fears.
  • Shingles and Pneumonia vaccines. When and how can I protect myself?

 Watch them all.  Each of our experts, whether family physician, professor, or public health expert bring different perspectives to the same critical topic.
