Keith Peterson, Nunavut's health minister, gets a flu shot from public health nurse Susie Pearce during a flu clinic offered Oct. 30 at the Nunavut Assembly building in Iqaluit. The influenza vaccine is available at all health centres in Nunavut, and at the public health unit in Iqaluit's Qikiqtani General Hospital, Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m and 4:30 p.m. Coughing and sneezing spread the flu, which can cause symptoms like fever, loss of appetite, sore muscles, sore throat and fatigue. Regular hand-washing helps stop it from spreading. Check www.flunu.ca for more information. (PHOTO BY SAMANTHA DAWSON)
