In celebration, the Pilgrims held a traditional English harvest festival, lasting three days, …

Winter is here! And with Thanksgiving just around the corner, the holiday season is officially upon us.

The exact timing and duration of each year’s flu season can vary, but influenza activity often begins to increase in October. Most of the time flu activity peaks between December and February, although activity can last as late as May.
