"The single best way to protect yourself and your loved ones is to get vaccinated - either by the flu nasal spray or injection", said Dr. Pino in a press release. It went from local to regional flu activity in the past week.

"Businesses should be proactive in helping keep workers and customers safe from getting the flu virus by taking steps to help prevent the spread of germs in their facilities", says Adam Soreff, director of marketing and communications at UniFirst Corporation, a leading provider of work uniforms and facility service products to businesses throughout the North America. People with the flu are infectious for up to 7 days after symptoms begin. The flu is not the stomach illness many people call the flu, but the flu is the respiratory illness that can make you ill for weeks, can put you into the hospital, and can kill.
