Information for VUMC Employees and Patients

A conversation about omicron, flu and carefully enjoying the holidays

In this video, infectious disease expert Bill Schaffner, MD, and chief hospital epidemiologist Tom Talbot, MD, talk about what we know, and don't know, about the omicron variant, the current uptick in COVID-19 cases, the emerging flu season and how we can carefully celebrate and enjoy the holiday season. Spoiler alert: vaccinate, vaccinate, vaccinate ... and wear masks in indoor public settings!
