And if there are people in your life who are sick or frail, getting the flu shot is like a "coccoon of protection" to help keep those people safe.

Kristy Wright is the Region's Manager of Infectious Disease, Tuberculosis Control & Emergency Preparedness, and tells The Jennifer Campbell Show the flu vaccination gets updated each year as the virus mutates.

It takes about two weeks for the body's immune system to fully respond to the flu vaccine.

Flu vaccines can not cause the flu, because the vaccines are made with either killed or weakened viruses. Flu vaccine is especially important for infants, young children, pregnant women, adults over 50, and for those with chronic conditions.

"Seasonal flu vaccine can be given at any stage of pregnancy and also protects the baby".

Flu symptoms include fever, chills, cough, headache, muscle ache, runny nose, and tiredness.

Starting Oct 23rd, flu shots are also available through health care providers and selected pharmacies. While it is recommended to get vaccinated early in the fall, later vaccinations - all the way through January - can still be beneficial. "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.

The illness can spread from person to person through breathing, coughing and sneezing.

Wash your hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand rub.

Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
