The seasonal flu vaccine is once again available free of charge to all Manitobans aged six months and older. Health, Seniors and Active Living Minister Cameron Friesen says getting the flu vaccine is important for the health of all Manitobans but especially for those at increased risk of serious illness from the flu, their caregivers and close family and friends. She adds every Manitoban knows an infant, a senior, someone with diabetes or asthma or someone seeking treatment for cancer so she encourages all to protect themselves as well as others by getting their no charge flu immunization this fall.
Flu shots will be available at the Flin Flon Primary Health Care Centre October 29th and November 3rd, 7th and 21st, at the Cranberry Portage Wellness Centre November 1st and 15th and the Snow Lake Health Center November 2nd, 13th and 14th. A complete list for the region is available on the Northern Health Region website.
