Chris' Corner: Beeton Flu Clinic

Beeton Flu Clinic

Its that time of year again. As winter approaches, we are entering another flu season.

We can help reduce the spread of influenza through a proactive regimen including frequent good handwashing, covering our coughs and sneezes (or coughing into our elbows), staying home when sick, but the best way to prevent the spread of influenza is to get vaccinated every year. The influenza vaccine is recommended for everyone over the age of six months who is not allergic to the vaccine.

A recent study showed that the influenza vaccine results in a reduction of 30,000 visits to hospital emergency departments, 1,000 hospitalizations and 300 deaths in Ontario alone.

An upcoming clinic in Beeton will be held at the DA Jones Library (on Main St) on November 2nd. Appointments are being booked online. South Simcoe Clinics can be accessed and booked online by clicking on this Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit Link

Hi Chris - One point worth stating is that the flu shot is provided free to Ontario residents.

Marc, there is overwhelming evidence that the shot helps us all with absolutely minimal risks... and you are right, its FREE

Valerie, Helen, Alec and I are booked for tomorrow at 4:40, 4:45, and 4:40.  How convenient is that?

My mother-in-law got hers last week, and my parents earlier in the month b4 a trip to Africa
