Northern Health says, to put the H1N1 outbreak in perspective, 400 to 800 people die in British Columbia from the seasonal flu or pneumonia each year.

But, officials continue to advise citizens to get their free H1N1 vaccination.

Anyone interested in getting the flu shot should call 250-263-6000 to book an appointment.
