"The sooner you're vaccinated, the sooner you're protected - and you'll stay protected throughout the flu season". "It is a choice, but we strongly encourage them to get immunized".

With influenza already starting to show up in our region this year, Fraser Health is reminding everyone to get their flu shot, not only to protect themselves but also their loved ones.

New data shows that less than one third of hospital workers in Waterloo Region got the flu shot a year ago.

Although flu shots have proven to be the best way to teach your immune system to fight back if exposed to the flu virus, many Hoosiers skip it.

Among all the geographical regions, US was the largest Influenza Vaccine market in the year 2010 closely followed by China. This year's flu shot offers protection against two in influenza A viruses (an H1N1 and an H3N2 virus) and one influenza B virus.


Albert Tawadrous, the pharmacist manager at No Frills, said it's important to get the shot.

There are suggestions for helping contain the virus and keep it from spreading to others. "The flu vaccine can not give you the flu as it does not contain any live flu virus and all those at risk should get vaccinated as soon as possible this year to make sure that they are protected", she added.

Wash your hands often with soap and water. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth to prevent the spread of germs. The CDC, Center for Disease Control, tracks the various strains of the flu and change the vaccines to help fight the most common strains that are found each year.

Starting Friday, you'll be able to get your flu shot for free at one of five vaccine clinics held around the city.

To find an influenza immunization clinic or provider near you, watch for local announcements on dates and times in your community; or contact your local public health centre, physician office or pharmacy. To receive a flu shot, participants should be feeling well on the day of the flu shot exercise and must complete a brief health screening to ensure they can safely receive a flu vaccine.
