Smaller cities tend to have a shorter, but more intense flu season. "We support student-led efforts to promote and raise awareness about the importance of the flu".

The flu vaccine and Pneu-P-23 vaccine, which helps protect against pneumococcal disease and is offered free of charge to seniors, are available at local public health offices, nursing stations, doctors' offices, and Access Centres.

"It's swift and easy, and anyone who hasn't gotten their flu shot should go get it", said Wainwright, an advertising major.

Dr. Esper says having your child vaccinated can protect them from the flu - but it also protects people around them who may be high risk.

The entire flu season is long and can last half the year. "I would rather help keep them healthy than risk making them seriously unwell". For those who are a Medicare beneficiary, your seasonal flu vaccine is usually covered, but check with the provider of the flu shot before getting it.

The flu season is now officially underway and the state and area hospitals are holding mass vaccination events.

The CDC said that for the conventional shot, there is no "preferential recommendation" between cell-grown versus egg-grown vaccines, or between a vaccine that protects against three flu virus types and a vaccine that protects for four flu virus types.

Remember, some folks think the flu is any gastrointestinal illness - that's a common misconception.
