The latest weekly flu report shows that flu continues to circulate widely in our communities, which is in keeping with how flu typically spreads at this time of year in this part of the country. We can expect to see elevated levels of flu activity well into February, March and even later.  That’s why we continue to encourage everyone six months or older in the Commonwealth to get a flu vaccine. Please contact your health care provider, your local board of health, or your local pharmacy to get a flu shot today.
