It’s that time of year again. The Health Unit is reminding the public of the importance of the flu shot.
Flu vaccine provides adults and children with active immunity against the influenza virus. The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit recommends annual immunization against influenza for any persons over 6 months of age.
There is a new flu vaccine produced each year to protect against the three strains of influenza most commonly circulating during the flu season. Pregnant women are recommended to receive the influenza vaccine.
The Health Unit is hosting 10 community flu shot clinics this year from November 16th – December 9th. For more info, head to www.healthunit.org.
