    2020 has been a hard year. The COVID-19 pandemic has killed our loved ones, made many Texans sick, and upended our lives. Now we’re facing another big threat – flu season.

    Each year in the United States, the influenza (flu) virus kills or hospitalizes thousands of people and makes millions sick.
