The flu season is underway. The province’s influenza immunization program offers free flu vaccines at vaccine clinics across the province. It is recommended once a year for anyone older than 6 months with rare exception. To better arm yourself against influenza, it is also recommended:
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when sneezing or coughing
- Use soap and warm water, wash your hands thoroughly and often
- Stay home when sick
Your local immunization clinics schedules are available here.
