 ..
..

Flu shots are being administered all over the province, and the Northern Peninsula and Southern Labrador are no exception.

Clinics began yesterday, Oct. 31, and the shot is available to anyone six months of age and older, especially those who are at risk for influenza complications.

In a news release from Labrador-Grenfell Health, it’s encouraged for everyone eligible to get the influenza vaccination. Also, to avoid spreading the flu, it is advised people follow the three Cs:

Clean your hands;

Cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue or the crook of your arm;

Contain illness by staying home and resting.
