We have been advised by Halton Public Health that they have fully distributed its allotment of high-dose flu vaccinations for the 2020-2021 season.
We have been advised by Halton Public Health that they have fully distributed it’s allotment of high-dose flu vaccinations for the 2020-2021 season. Unfortunately, the supply is insufficient to meet our demand.
Please note that Public Health supplies our clinic, the pharmacy is supplied by a separate supply chain. High-dose flu shots may be available at local pharmacies but we cannot guarantee this.
It is important for seniors to get a flu shot! Any of the remaining influenza vaccines are preferable to remaining unvaccinated.
Early uptake of the flu shot and continued COVID-19 Public Health measures including masks, hand hygiene and physical distancing will help to keep cases of flu low this year.
