Flu vaccines are already arriving in some Massachusetts drug stores and clinics, and federal health authorities recommend that virtually everyone past infancy get protected this year. CommonHealth will be writing more about the upcoming flu season in the next few days:  What is the outlook for this year? What did we learn from Swine Winter? But first, Massachusetts' crack public health commissioner, John Auerbach, sums up what the public should know now in the 15-second video above.

This program aired on September 1, 2010. The audio for this program is not available.
