Dr. Angela Branche is an associate professor of medicine at the University of Rochester, where she studies respiratory diseases. She can discuss:

  • How this year’s flu season–as well as the seasons for the common cold and RSV (respiratory syncytial virus)–appear to be going;
  • How these illnesses spread (including differences from the ways COVID-19 is transmitted) and what people can do to protect themselves and their loved ones if there is an outbreak in their community;
  • Vaccines for COVID-19 and influenza: how they work, how well they work, who should get them, and when.
