American life has been fundamentally changed as a result of the COVID-19 virus, which caused a public health emergency to be declared January 31, 2020. Since then, concerts, parades, and baseball games have continued to be canceled. Countless people have found themselves jobless, uninsured, and struggling to afford housing and food. Many schools and colleges will hold few or no in-person classes this fall. The virus has left no state unscathed, but its impact has been wildly uneven. Three states, California, Florida, and Texas, have collectively had about a third of all cases in the US.
There has also been an impact to preventive services across the US. It is imperative that patients get their preventive services, but at this time he best advice is to use the rate of community transmission to guide decisions to reach out to patients for preventive care, which includes flu immunization as we enter the flu season this fall.
