Flu clinics starting earlier in our district

Our local Health Unit is offering flu shots earlier this year.  Initially, the North Bay and Parry Sound District Health Unit will focus on making sure people who are most vulnerable to complications from the flu get their flu shot and once they have been protected, we will provide flu shots to everyone who lives in Ontario.  Those most vulnerable to complications from the flu include adults and children with chronic conditions, such as cancer, diabetes, heart, lung or kidney disease; people who live in nursing homes; anyone over the age of 65; healthy pregnant women, Aboriginal people, and children between 6 months and 5 years old.  You can get your flu shot at one of our community clinics, doctors’ offices or at participating pharmacies and for a complete schedule of our clinics, visit www.myhealthunit.ca/fluclinicschedule.
