This week’s report shows that rates of flu-like illness have increased since last week, which is in keeping with how flu season typically tends to develop in this part of the country. We likely won’t see the season peak until we’re into February or even March, and with the holidays fast approaching there’s no better time to protect ourselves and our loved ones from the flu by getting a flu shot. Call your doctor, your local board of health or a local pharmacy – there is still plenty of flu vaccine available.
