Flu clinics set for Red Deer

Share

The vaccine will be available to Albertans aged six months and older, through AHS public influenza immunization clinics, along with a number of pharmacies and doctors' offices. Because those strains change from season to season, Albertans are reminded they can not rely on having been immunized in years past.

Over a six-month period last season more than 1,600 Albertans were hospitalized with the flu and up to 64 Albertans died with it, the release said.

"Last season, influenza immunization cut Albertans' risk for influenza by just more than 40 per cent". This means Red Deerians and Albertans from across the province can begin to protect themselves and others from the flu this season.

Influenza causes more emergency department visits than heart attacks and strokes, according to AHS. Influenza can be one less thing we battle this winter.

"In particular, those with caring responsibilities need to be extra careful which is why it's important that they know that they are entitled to have the free flu vaccination and avoid becoming unwell". This clinic is for drop-in patients to receive their immunization. This clinic is only for pre-booked appointments. November 30 will be the last clinic planned for Sylvan Lake. It is also spread by touching objects that have been coughed or sneezed on by someone with the flu.

Other times include the Harvest Centre on October 23 from 9:30 a.m.to 4 p.m. and October 24 from 12:30 to 7:30 p.m. Clinics at the Harvest Centre are also planned for October 25 from 12:30 to 7:30 p.m. October 28th from 9:30 a.m.to 4 p.m. and November 1 from 12:30 p.m.to 7:30 p.m.

AHS immunization clinics will be held at Westerner Park Harvest Centre, 4847A 19th St., Oct. 23 and 28 from 9:30 a.m.to 4 p.m.; and Oct. 24, 25 and November 1 from 12:30 to 7:30 p.m.

More details on influenza immunization can be found online, or by calling Health Link at 811.
