The best way to protect yourself and your family is to get the seasonal flu shot.
The flu shot is recommended for everyone aged six months or older. With a good match between the virus strains in the vaccine and the strains in circulation during influenza season, studies have shown that the flu shot can prevent about 60 to 80% of flu in healthy adults and children.
