This week's report shows that flu-like illness continues to hum along at a fairly low level, as we enter into the new year; however those rates arelikely to rise significantly as our flu season in New England kicks into high gear during January and February. Make a new year's resolution that's actually easy to keep — get a flu shot while the coast is still clear. Flu vaccine continues to be available by calling your health care provider or looking for a local flu clinic at this online searchable database. Best wishes for a safe and restful New Year's weekend, and see you in 2012!
