Influenza vaccination clinics will begin to roll throughout the region starting Monday, October 17, 2022. This is the first year both influenza and COVID-19 will be circulating broadly within our communities at the same time. That’s because for the last couple of years, cases of the flu were rare due to the widespread use of COVID-19 prevention measures such as masking and social distancing. With the relaxing of restrictions around COVID-19, cases of influenza are expected to rise.
COVID-19 vaccine clinics are open to all eligible residents including children 6 months and older; and are also available from pharmacies and family physicians. Additional appointments are made available as soon as capacity increases. Please be patient and check back frequently.
