This week the activity level has been raised to local, which is what we would expect to see at this time of year. This means that there has been an increase of flu-like illness as well as laboratory confirmation of influenza in the last seven days. There couldn't be a better time to get a flu shot to keep yourself and your family safe and healthy this flu season. There's more vaccine available this year than ever before, and you can find yours by calling your health care provider, or by searching this online flu clinic database for community-based flu clinics in your area.
