Interior Health also reminds the public that during the influenza season visitors who have not had a flu shot are required to wear a mask when visiting Interior Health hospitals, health centres and residential care facilities, including contracted facilities.

The flu vaccine is available at doctors' offices and pharmacies.

The vaccine is free for all Nova Scotians. Flu shots are only good for one season so it is recommended that everyone gets the shot regularly.

Here is a list of times and locations where you can get your flu shot. "(It) still takes your body a little bit of time to build up immunity and the immune response so usually, about a week to 10 days before you're fully protected".

A flu-like illness is often characterized by sudden onset of fever, sore throat, muscle aches, cough and weakness.

If early reports are a signal of how this flu season will be in the area, it could be a harsh one.

According to CDC, children below 5 years of age, pregnant women, people who are 65 years or older, and people with chronic health conditions like asthma, diabetes or heart and lung diseases are at a high risk of developing complications from the flu.

However, Chafe says everyone benefits from getting immunized.

It's not so much about you getting the shot; it's about the people you could be giving the flu to. Morrison said she hopes that leads to more people getting vaccinated. Anyone can get influenza, and it can be a serious illness that may cause hospitalization and death.

He adds that healthy young adults should get the flu as well because they could still be carriers and transmit the disease to vulnerable people. Protecting yourself before the peak of the season will ensure better protection from sickness.

Those who are 65 or older can speak to their doctors about whether they'd benefit from a high-dose vaccine (Fluzone High-Dose), which is four times stronger than the standard shot, or the adjuvanted vaccine (Fluad), which has an additive created to elicit a more robust immune reaction.
