We are happy to share that this week's report shows that the amount of flu-like illness in the state continues to decline and has now reached a level that is slightly below what is expected for this time of year. While this is certainly good news, we continue to encourage everyone to take this opportunity to get vaccinated. Remember, while we may not be seeing large numbers of people with the flu right now, we could still see another wave in the weeks and months ahead. You can find a clinic in your area at http://flu.masspro.org.
