H1N1 Symptoms

According to Ontario’s Ministry of Health, H1N1 flu feels very much like the regular seasonal flu. Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.

Most cases tend to be mild. If your symptoms don’t improve in a few days call your doctor or Telehealth at 1-866-797-0000.
