There was a slight dip in flu activty this past week, as illustarted by this week's flu report (Word), but we will have to wait and see if this trend continues. 

Getting vaccinated is the single most effective way to protect against the flu, and it’s absolutely not too late to get a flu shot in order to protect yourself and your loved ones. Call your health care provider to schedule an appointment or visit www.mylocalclinic.com to find a flu clinic near you.
