Don’t Suffer From the Flu!!! 

      … What You Can Do to Protect Yourself and Your Loved Ones

    Seniors 65 and over with are at greater risk of hospitalization and death.

    According to the N.S. Dept. of Health and Wellness, “Every year, about 20,000 Canadians are hospitalized and 4000 die from complications of influenza.”   Flu accounts for 70 per cent of total influenza-related hospitalizations and 90 per cent of total influenza-related deaths.  Influenza, also known as the flu, is an unpredictable and highly contagious viral infection of the nose, throat and lungs. Influenza viruses travel through air droplets when an infected individual coughs, sneezes or talks.
