Busy First Week for Flu Shot Clinics in Southern Alberta

It's been busy at flu shot clinics across southern Alberta.

It's been busy at flu shot clinics across southern Alberta. Clinics opened across the province on Monday and the intake so far has been fairly high. Public Health Nurse, Trina Haney, is the Immunization Program Lead in Lethbridge. She says traffic at the mass clinics at Exhibition Park has been very steady. She says people showed up in droves on Tuesday and nurses ended up giving about 250 more doses than they had expected. Alberta Health Services is also hosting a family-friendly "Flu-Lapalooza" Health Resource Fair at Exhibition Park November 1st.  For a list of all flu shot clinics across the region, visit the Alberta Health Services website at http://www.albertahealthservices.ca/influenza/influenza.aspx Vaccines will be available until the end of March. -Pat Siedlecki
