Flu activity continues to be very low across the Commonwealth, which is about right for this time of year. But we'll definitely see these figures going up as flu season gets into gear later in November and December, so now's the time to get a flu vaccine. One flu shot does it all this year — no need for a separate H1N1 shot like last year. And we continue to see ever-increasing amounts of flu vaccine in the state. So make plans to keep yourself and your family safe and healthy this flu season. Contact your health care provider or look for locations in your area that are offering flu shots by visiting this online flu vaccine locator.
