It is not too late to get vaccinated this flu season. Fever or chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches, fatigue and vomiting and diarrhea, which is more common in young children than adults. Through small droplets from people who are talking, coughing or sneezing. "Even now, there is still plenty of time to benefit from vaccination coverage and help keep your family healthy before flu activity increases".
