It’s time to get your flu shot

It's flu season, time to get your shot

Flu season is here and health-care professionals should take extra precaution since they are at a higher risk for infection.

On a global scale, influenza affects five to 10 per cent of adults per year and an average of 12,000 hospitalizations due to influenza occur annually. The flu spreads easily and can affect RNs and NPs, their families as well as their patients. Do your part to help protect vulnerable individuals, as well as yourself, by getting your flu shot.
