Boosters and the holidays

Dr. Imran Adrian Khan of Sudbury Public Health says there have been over 300 flu cases since December 16th, a 20-year high for the district.

He adds, they are also seeing ongoing COVID-19 transmission and illness, so he encourages the public to get their immunizations as soon as possible.
