It’s that time of year again. Coughs, fevers and sore throats are just a few of the symptoms that accompany a case of the flu. While reports predict this year’s flu season may be milder than previous years, it is impossible to know exactly how flu season will progress. The best defence against the flu is the influenza vaccine, especially for older adults who are at higher risk of complications from the influenza virus. The flu shot is quick, readily available, virtually painless and it can protect you. Whether you are living in your own home, with family, in a retirement community or long-term care facility, the flu shot can help you stay healthy throughout the winter.
