As the weather turns colder, flu season is approaching fast and the PHU wants you to be ready.

Public Health Nurse Louise Gaulin says the best way to avoid the flu is to get vaccinated.

Gaulin says the PHU encourages the community to get their free immunizations throughout November.

She says people can also receive the vaccine from their local health care providers or a local pharmacy.

Gaulin says the PHU will open its free community-based immunization clinics starting on November 1st.
