As the best defence against influenza infection and illness, influenza immunization is recommended, annually, for all Albertans six months of age and older.
Influenza is spread through the air. The virus gets in the air when someone with the disease coughs, sneezes, or even talks. People who breathe in the virus can get sick. It can also be spread by touching objects that have been coughed or sneezed on by someone with the virus.
Start your year healthy, and stay that way!
