Encouraging news if you got your flu shot

Flu shot

A lot of Quebecers have the flu or have had it this season.

But, there's good news if you got the shot this time around.

"The strain of the flu that's going around this year is the H3N2. And the positive thing to know is that that strain is in this year's vaccine. So, there's reason to believe that the flu vaccine this year will be relatively effective", reported CTV's Rob Lurie. 

Health officials say you can still get the vaccine.

It's free for children aged 6 months to two years, anyone over 60, or people with serious health conditions, including diabetes.
