Your Community Immunity

The average Canadian gets two to three colds a year, with influenza remaining the 8th leading cause of death in Canada.

Although your symptoms may be minor, for at risk groups, consequences of the flu could be deadly. Unfortunately, the Promoli family found this out last year when they lost their two-year-old son Jude to influenza. Whether you get the flu shot every year, or if you’re on the fence, learn more about how the flu shot works and who you’re really protecting by getting vaccinated.

Cold and flu prevention doesn’t stop at the flu shot — there are many symptom management techniques we can use leading up to and during the season to minimize symptom duration and spread. Simple tips, like staying hydrated and taking sick days when needed, are a great start, as well as looking further into the benefits of natural remedies and nutritional supplements like probiotics. The best offense is a great defense, so make sure you know how to handle the cold and flu by reading this go-to guide!
