It Is Time For Your Flu Shot

Flu Shot Clinics are underway in our area and Immunize Canada reminds you it’s important to get a flu shot.  Their Chairperson Dr. Susan Bowles says the shot is your best protection against influenza every year.  She explains the virus is a tricky thing as it changes slightly from year to year, sometimes changing dramatically so it’s important to get your flu shot every year so you have the protection against that strain of the virus that’s going to be circulating in the community.

             

Dr. Bowles says everyone should get the flu shot but there are some who are at high risk for complications from influenza including those with chronic health conditions, pregnant women, children six month to five years old, aboriginal people, residents of long term care facilities and people over 65 years of age.
