The last weekly flu report of 2018 shows that rates of flu-like illness continued to rise over the past seven days. We expect these rates to climb in the coming weeks, so now is the time to get a flu shot – it’s not too late. There is still plenty of flu vaccine available in communities across Massachusetts. Call your health care provider, visit a local pharmacy, or search for flu vaccination locations at https://vaccinefinder.org/. In the meantime, here’s to a happy and healthy new year!
