Now that fall is well underway, it can only mean one thing: winter flu season is coming and it’s ready to make your life miserable.

While eating fruits and veggies and stocking up on vitamins are key for beating the bug, getting the flu shot may be your best bet to avoid getting the flu altogether this year.

Luckily for Torontonians, Toronto Public Health will be offering FREE flu shots at various locations throughout the city on various dates in November.
