CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. – Fall is here and Halloween is right around the corner. The Ontario County Office of Public Health wants to remind people, “Flu before boo.”

The Office of Public Health say it’s best if you get your flu shot before heading out to celebrate Halloween. They also say that it takes two weeks to provide maximum immunity, so now is the best time.        

With Australia experiencing its worst flu outbreak in five years, the CDC believes we could see a surge here in the United States.

Talk to your healthcare provider for more information on this year’s vaccine.
