We hope that everyone had a healthy and happy New Year. As you can see in this week's report, there appears to be a slight increase of flu-like illness in the state, however, the number of sites reporting this week was lower than usual so this data should be interpreted with caution. Nevertheless, there is still a chance of another wave of flu this season this so we continue to encourage all residents to get the H1N1 vaccine. You can find a clinic near you on www.mass.gov/flu.
