With the cold weather here to stay for the next couple of months, and the possibility of chill and snow just around the corner, something else is upon us; the Flu Season 🤧
Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is a common, highly contagious respiratory infection that affects the nose, throat and lungs, and makes you feel quite ill.
Flu symptoms usually last about 7-10 days and are not like a common cold. It is a serious infection especially in infants, seniors and people who have other pre-existing medical conditions 😷
This year, more than ever before, Reena would like to encourage all staff to get the flu shot. The flu shot is even more important this year, because of the timing of the pandemic. Some experts are cautioning against what they call a ‘Twin-Demic’ situation, where one could get infected with both 🤒
It is important to get the flu shot in order to protect yourself, your family, your colleagues, and the individuals we support and care for from the flu 💪❤️
