Featuring: Michael Ison, MD, MS
As flu season begins and COVID-19 continues to spread, Michael Ison, MD, is here to share some of his latest findings. He is part of Northwestern research teams running studies both on COVID-19 and on influenza vaccines and treatments.
While the COVID-19 pandemic continues, influenza season is just beginning in the United States. There is growing concern that an increase in clinic visits and hospitalizations due to the flu or COVID-19 could overwhelm healthcare systems in the months ahead, but there are things people can do to help prevent this scenario, says Michael Ison, MD, MS. Getting a flu shot and continuing to wear a mask in public and to practice social distancing and good hand hygiene are all ways to help protect yourself and others this fall and winter, he says.
