Flu shot file

Family physician Anjuli Sinha administers a flu vaccine Oct. 23 at Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Group Primary Care Clinic at Oak Drive. Local health officials believe precautions against the coronavirus along with flu vaccinations are reflected in the significant drop in cases of the common this season.

Residents are still testing positive for the flu and are counted separately from those who contracted COVID-19, CHI St. Luke’s Health Brazosport Chief Medical Officer Roland Prezas said.

While COVID-19 is spreading at its peak, Texas residents have undergone a mild flu season with only 0.88 percent testing positive of 22,525 tests between Sept. 27 and Dec. 26, according to state data.
