Our 2016/17 Flu Clinics Begin, Monday, October 24th, 2016

It’s that time of year again and yes we will be participating in the Alberta Health sponsored Flu Vaccination program beginning with our first day Monday October 24th, 2016 at 1:30pm.   This is a no charge, come as you are, just walk in flu shot clinic.   All you need to bring is your Personal Health Card (Alberta Health Card), one bare arm (left or right will do) and a big smile for our pharmacists who will be administering the flu shots.

By the way, you have to be 9 years of age and older.   We will have the appropriate flu vaccination for all ages from 9 years old and up.   Seniors are recommended to receive Fluad this year which is a trivalent vaccine with an adjuvant, which improves the immune response gained from the vaccination.   All others will receive Fluzone or Flumist if that is preferred for our younger crowd.   The Flumist is administered as a nasal mist and is an alternative to the injection for those who prefer this over the injection.   All of this will be discussed with you when you arrive for your flu shot.   Give yourself some extra time if you have some questions.   The pharmacy staff will be glad to help you with any questions related to your vaccination.

See you soon.
