Ottawa Public Health offers flu shots, by appointment, for children under five (613 580-6744).

The flu is making its rounds in nearly every state around the country and more people are coming down with the common flu symptoms. The predominant strain now circulating is H1N1, which is affecting younger age groups more than strains that have circulated in previous years. That applies to data collected on both adults and children. Since September, Ottawa Public Health has recorded 77 lab-confirmed cases of the flu, similar to the amount seen at the same time past year. The Department of Health also recommends that people take the necessary precautions during this flu season: wash or disinfect your hands frequently, cover any coughs and sneezes, stay home and call your health care provider if you are sick (especially with a fever).

Moore said physicians at CHEO are seeing cases of RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) and other viruses as well as some flu.

From Dec. 23 to 29, 2019, the province reported 64 new influenza cases, including one death and one ICU admission.

Limerick-based Dr Kevin Kelleher, the assistant national director in health protection, said that flu levels are likely to increase over the coming weeks when the flu begins to actively circulate in the community. "This year, the predominant strain we're seeing is H1N1", Shahab said.

The HSE is urging all people in at-risk groups for the flu to get vaccinated if they have not done so already.

While it's best to get one early in the season, it's never too late - and doing so may protect not only you, but also children, the elderly and other vulnerable populations, experts say. A previous version misstated the age of children affected by the flu in a quote from Dr. Danuta Skowronski.
