This week’s flu report shows a slight uptick in the amount of flu-like illness being reported by health care providers across the state. This in keeping with how flu season tends to ramp at this time of the year in New England. As we head into the holidays and spend more time with extended family and friends, there is no better way to protect yourself and your loved ones from getting the flu, than by getting a flu shot now. There is plenty of flu vaccine available, as a shot or as a nasal spray – call your doctor, your local board of health, or a pharmacy near you to get protected against the flu!
