Each year, more than 8,000 Canadians die from complications associated with influenza (the flu). Getting the flu shot annually, along with frequent and proper hand washing, are the best ways to keep patients, co-workers, your family and yourself safe from the flu this year.
Flu shots are now available for all staff, physicians and volunteers at Mackenzie Health.
In the community, flu shots are available at physicians’ offices and many local pharmacies.
