Race Tightens for Virginia Governor
In the Wason Center's benchmark poll, released September 25, Northam's lead stood at 6 percent (47 percent to 41 percent). Three weeks before elections, and according to this morning's Wason Poll, the race for Governor is tightening.

Dr. Kling says flu season often hits hardest in December when students are out of school for Christmas break, so late fall is a good time to start building immunity through the vaccination. It takes about two weeks for the vaccine to take effect. The flu is different from a common cold virus infection because of its ability to cause serious complications. The virus spreads easily from person to person by direct contact, coughing and sneezing. Residency is not required. The health department asks that people bring health insurance information or cash, credit card or check.

Based on global trends identified by the World Health Organization, the flu shot provides protection from the influenza virus strains expected to be circulating this season. As a result, the flu vaccine also needs to change each year to ensure it protects against the current viruses.

All healthy persons, 19 to 64, who do not have contraindications to influenza vaccine are also encouraged to get it.
