The officials warned Monday that hospitals face potential overcrowding with flu patients while still trying to manage the COVID-19 pandemic.

Flu shots are already available and several large pharmacies have enacted COVID-19 precautions while administering the vaccines.
This was Governor Ducey's first appearance in more than a week. No press conference was held last week while Governor Ducey was a guest at the Republican National Convention.
