Flu vaccinations aren't ideal but will reduce your chances of becoming ill.

Health experts say when it comes to the flu, there are major symptoms to be on the look out for - especially ones that appear suddenly and severely. Still, most Albertans don't get vaccinated.

Even though the flu season is underway, there are still potentially several months of the season left, and it's not too late to get a flu shot. "Getting the flu vaccine is the most important thing you can do to protect yourself and your loved ones from getting influenza". The agency gets statistics early in the new year, Hu said. Fatigue, body aches are also commonly associated with the illness.
