I got my flu shot, have you?

The best way of protecting yourself from the flu, and the many complications that come with it, is by getting vaccinated.

I encourage all Nova Scotians to get their annual flu shot. I got mine this past weekend from one of my favourite pharmacists at Lawtons Drugs — my daughter, Tara!

It is not only safe and free, but also available from most pharmacists, family doctors, nurse practitioners and walk-in clinics.

Those looking to get vaccinated are encouraged to do so from now until mid-December, as it may take up to two weeks to be fully protected.
