Flu Season Is Coming: Flu Shot Schedule

Flu Season Is Coming: Flu Shot Schedule

Each year in Canada, about 3500 people die from the flu complications such as pneumonia. The flu also leads to approximately 12,000 hospitalizations per year.  Even though you may be healthy, you could be carrying the flu virus in your body, which means you can spread it to others.

Earlier this year an outbreak occurred and 23 people living at River Road Place had Influenza A or H1N1.

Flu shot clinics are scheduled throughout October at 440 River Road to help protect others.

If you get a flu shot through your doctor or local pharmacy you can let Occupational Health Services know by calling 204 256.4301 ext. 0 or email flushot@stamant.ca, so they can have a more accurate list of which staff has received a flu shot.

Protect yourself, your family and your community by getting one. Remember to wear loose clothing that allows access to the upper arm and bring your Manitoba Health card. Private clinics have been scheduled for program and service areas as well – see below for a schedule of flu shot clinics.
