Chris' Corner: Innisfil Flu Clinic

Innisfil 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.

A Flu Clinic will be held at the Innisfil Public Library Lakeshore Branch, 967 Innisfil Beach Rd. on Wednesday November 9th. Appointments are being booked online. South Simcoe Clinics can be accessed and booked online by clicking on this Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit Link

Ron, Our area has introduced a new way of delivering the flu shots allowing for online booking of appts.  It went very smooth for our family yesterday, with minimal waiting.

Thanks for the statistics Chris~

I am hesitant to get flu shots, not enough knowledge has been keeping me from exercising that option

Best regards from Seattle,
