Influenza has been circulating in other provinces and more recently in some health regions in the province. It has now been detected in our region too.
If you haven’t received your flu shot yet public health is strongly recommending that you get it and it is still available for you. The samples of virus that have so far been tested in Canada have indicated that the vaccine this year is a good match for the current strains of influenza that are circulating.
Please contact your local public health office, your local pharmacy or your physician to make arrangements to get your flu shot.
