Flu season is here and Eastern Health is reminding the public of the importance of getting vaccinated.
The flu vaccine will be available throughout the season at clinics or by appointment at local community health offices.
Clinic schedules and community health office information can be found on Eastern Health’s website at www.easternhealth.ca/fluclinics.
Information is also available by calling the flu clinic line at (709) 752-7850 within the St. John’s area or toll-free at 1-877-925-2100.
Eastern Health encourages anyone six months of age or older to be vaccinated.
It is particularly important for people who are at increased risk for complications from influenza and those who could transmit the virus to individuals at high-risk, the health authority says.
