Rates of flu-like illness declined over the past seven days, according to the latest weekly flu report. But we can expect these rates to rise as we head further into flu season, so now is the time to get a flu shot if you haven’t done so already. Flu vaccine is available across the state at multiple locations, including health care provider offices, pharmacies, school and workplace vaccination clinics, and flu vaccine clinics sponsored by local boards of health.  A list of flu vaccine availability based on zip code can be found at https://vaccinefinder.org/.
