Chris' Corner: 2012 Alliston Flu Clinics

2012 Alliston Flu Clinics

Its that time of year again. As winter approaches, we are entering another flu season.

We can help reduce the spread of influenza through a proactive regimen including frequent good handwashing, covering our coughs and sneezes (or coughing into our elbows), staying home when sick, but the best way to prevent the spread of influenza is to get vaccinated every year. The influenza vaccine is recommended for everyone over the age of six months who is not allergic to the vaccine.

A recent study showed that the influenza vaccine results in a reduction of 30,000 visits to hospital emergency departments, 1,000 hospitalizations and 300 deaths in Ontario alone.

I remember when I was in the restaurant business, I washed my hands daily too many times to count. I also remember not getting sick too

Very wise advice Chris, I think more and more people get the flu shot every year. I wasn't aware that it saved 300 lives in Ontario every year, that alone is a compelling reason to go and get one.

Richie, washing your hands, and not touching your eyes, nose and mouth is a good first line of defence.

Malcolm, aside from the recent issue with Italian flu shot serum, the flu shot is overwhelmingly a health benefit.
