Getting a flu shot is important every year. This year, it is particularly important given the COVID-19 pandemic. The flu shot will help to reduce the spread of influenza in our communities. It will also help to reduce the impact on the health-care system. Eastern Health is offering the flu vaccine at various locations across the region.
