The most effective way to protect yourself against the flu

The CISSS team in Montérégie West reminds us that vaccination is the best way to protect against seasonal flu. The 2018-2019 campaign began on November 1st. Elderly and chronically ill patients who are not vaccinated are at increased risk of complications, hospitalization and even death if they contract the virus. Therefore, it is essential that these people make an appointment.
