Health-care providers take steps to fight flu

(Continued)

There have been no confirmed cases of the flu in the North Country this season, but providers are recommending that everyone receive a flu vaccination. There are no vaccine shortages; they are available at most pharmacies across the region.

The flu season typically runs from autumn to early spring in the North Country, with numbers usually peaking after the new year. A single vaccination covers the entire season, but it takes about two weeks for the vaccine to become effective once a person receives the dose.
