Immunization does more than just protect you; it protects the people around you too. While for most people the flu is a relatively mild illness, it causes thousands of hospitalizations and deaths in Canada each year – particularly for those at highest risk. Look after yourself (and those around you) by getting vaccinated. Wash your hands often, cover your mouth when you cough, and stay home if you’re sick.
