As if we weren't experiencing enough with COVID-19, we are about to enter into flu season and many people are on the fence as to whether they should get their annual flu shot.  There is so much about COVID-19 that we don't yet know or understand and with the rise in confirmed cases in the Prairie Mountain Health Region many people are confused as to whether it's a good idea to get the shot or not.  Health experts are urging Canadians to get their annual shot in hopes of avoiding what they are coining a "twindemic" that could potentially cripple the health care system.  Not sure what to do?  My best advice would be to consult your family Doctor, ask the important questions and make your best decision from there.  The decision that's right for you.
