The Health Department say pensioners and people with certain medical conditions will benefit from protection against the 'flu.

David Oaki with the Region of Waterloo Public Health says they are recommending everyone get their flu shot.

Officials said young children and seniors, and adults with health issues should get vaccinated.

Roselyn Akombe said the commission was under political "siege", unable to reach consensus or take any decisions. Last week, a senior member of the electoral commission (IEBC) fled to the United States amid death threats.

They say people with chronic lung or heart disease, kidney or liver disease, HIV, diabetes, pregnant women, those who are obese and healthcare workers should get the vaccine.

AHS also urged healthy individuals to get it as well. "The more people that have obtained the flu shot that you're around, the less likely you are going to get the flu".

Common symptoms of the flu include fever or feeling feverish, a cough and/or sore throat, a runny or stuffy nose, chills, fatigue and body aches. The flu was most severe for those over 65 years old.

In addition to getting the vaccine, health officials advise everyone to take the following steps to protect yourself and loved ones from influenza. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone six months and older gets a yearly flu shot. The vaccine is also available at some pharmacies and retail stores and is offered by some employers.
