Once again the flu season is upon us, so it’s that time of year when the public is encouraged to protect themselves, family and community by getting the seasonal flu shot.
The flu is a respiratory infection caused by a virus. It can spread easily from one person to another through coughing, sneezing or sharing food or drinks. It can also spread by touching objects such as doorknobs, phones, game controllers and toys. The virus can live on hard surfaces for up to 48 hours.
The more people that receive the flu shot, the better families and community will be protected from the flu.
