The vaccination is free for all wishing to receive it. Please come prepared with your Manitoba Health Card, international student card or out-of-province medical card.
Short-sleeves or loose shirts are preferred for access to the injection site (shoulder), however, gowns will be available to change into if required, as well as privacy screens. The flu shot is recommended for everyone! Even if you “never get sick”, immunization is the best way to protect your loved ones and at risk public.
Every year in Canada over 10,000 individuals are hospitalized due to influenza and thousands more will die as a result of infection and our best defence is vaccinations. The flu shot is extremely safe and well-tolerated, however if you have any questions or concerns our health care professionals at the clinics will be happy to provide education and serve as resources to answer all of you inquiries. There will be treats and entry into a prize draw for all who get immunized at the clinics!
