  • People with chronic illnesses at risk of severe flu

The local health unit is reporting the first confirmed case of influenza A in Windsor-Essex.

One of the reasons for the high number of deaths was that the region and the country experienced a severe flu season.

Last season, 342 people in San Diego County died from complications from the flu, 255 more than the previous season and the highest total since the county began tracking flu deaths almost 20 years ago.

Health unit officials said the flu vaccine is safe and is free for people who work, live or study in Ontario.

Last season, 342 people in the region died from complications from the flu, 255 more than the previous season and the highest total since the County began tracking flu deaths almost 20 years ago. Emergency department visits for influenza-like illness accounted for 2 percent of all visits, unchanged from the previous week, according to the HHSA.

"If people get the flu shot every year, the likelihood of getting the flu is reduced, and that means people are unlikely to spread the disease to family, friends and into the community", the release reads. It takes two weeks for immunity to develop.

The flu can affect anyone but people at higher risk of serious complications are young children, adults aged 65 and over, pregnant women and those living with chronic health conditions. They also urge people to stay at home if they are sick.

If you miss today's flu clinic at the community centre, you can visit Shopper's Drugmart, London Drugs, the pharmacy at Save-on-Foods, as well as the Superstore pharmacy to get a flu vaccine. If you don't have medical insurance, you can go to a County public health center to get vaccinated. For a list of locations, visit http://www.sdiz.org or call 211.
