As you can see in this week's report, the level of flu-like illness in the state has decreased to an even lower level than what is expected for this time of year. While we would normally see seasonal flu-like illness begin to increase at this point and then peaking in late-February or Match, flu-like illness continues to remain at low levels. Nevertheless, we encourage everyone to get their H1N1 vaccine – find a clinic near you at http://flu.masspro.org or contact your regular health care provider.
