CommonHealth: Why Is Flu Season Coming So Late To Massachusetts?
Seventy-degrees in early March, a snowstorm on the first day of Spring — it’s been an odd weather year in Massachusetts. And, apparently, it’s been an odd year for the flu. The number of cases in the state has been spiking over the last few days, later than usual for the flu season to peak.
- “The latest weekly flu report indicates an increase in rates of flu-like illness in Massachusetts in the past seven days. It’s not too late to protect yourself and your family from getting sick this flu season. Call your health care provider or your local board of health, or visit a local pharmacy, and get vaccinated against the flu.”
