Province Reminding Long-Term Care Residents to Get Special High Dose Seasonal Flu Vaccine

The Province of Manitoba is reminding seniors that the high dose influenza vaccine is once again available for residents of long term care facilities that are 65 years of age and older.

 

Health, seniors, and active living minister Cameron Friesen says the high dose vaccine is being made available free of charge for seniors at long term care facilities that have a higher risk of suffering from complications of the flu and the goal of offering this vaccine is to further mitigate the health risks that come for Manitobans living in these care facilities when flu outbreaks occur and he encourages everyone eligible to get this vaccine.

 

The flu vaccine and the PNEU P-23 vaccine which helps protect against Pneumococcal  Disease is available at local public health offices, nursing stations, doctors offices, and access centres.

 

There will be a flu vaccine clinic here in the pas at the Roy H Johnston Arena on November 5th from one in the afternoon until 5:30.
