It's that time of year again when Albertans need to start thinking about how to avoid seasonal influenza.
Influenza is a respiratory illness, not to be confused with the stomach flu. It can cause sudden onset of fever, cough, headache, muscle and joint aches/pains, and fatigue. Most people get better within a week or two, but even healthy people can develop severe complications, including pneumonia. Some will even die from it.
Visit the Alberta Health website for more information on influenza.
Immunizations are free with an Alberta Health care card, and can be received at most pharmacies. Check with your pharmacy for times, or attend one of the clinics noted above.
