This week (December 5-9) is National Influenza Vaccination Week. It is a gentle reminder for everyone six months and older that it is still not too late to get the vaccine shot against flu.

Typical symptoms of the seasonal flu include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle aches and fatigue.

Vaccination is the best protection against the flu and is particularly important for pregnant women and people who are at higher risk of developing serious flu complications, including young children and people with chronic illness.

In addition to a flu vaccine, it is also important to follow healthy habits such as covering a cough or sneeze, washing your hands and avoiding others who are sick.
