The latest weekly flu report shows a slight decrease in the amount of flu-like illness in the state, when compared to last week. These types of slight weekly variations in flu rates shouldn’t distract from the overall fact that we can expect flu rates to climb in the coming weeks and months.

Call your doctor or your local board of health, or visit a local pharmacy and get vaccinated today.
