The Flu Season may be just around the corner.
We are once again encouraged to get our flu shots.
Gail Turner is the Director of Health Service with the Department of Health and Social Development.
She says her staff, in each of the Nunatsiavut communities is getting ready for this year’s flu shot program.
Turner says this year’s program isn’t as urgent as last year because of no reports of the H1N1 virus.
But she adds the regular flu shot will contain three components which will include protection from the regular flu virus and the H1N1 virus.
