Halloween Safety Tips from Manitoba Public Insurance

Today is Halloween and Manitoba Public Insurance has some important safety tips for trick or treaters and drivers. Trick or treaters should never run onto roadways and they should always look both ways when crossing the road. It is also recommended that they wear reflective clothing to make themselves more visible to motorists and to walk facing traffic when there is no sidewalk.


If you are driving this evening you are asked not to speed and you should to slow down when you see children walking. Do not assume children see your vehicle as they may run in front of you. You are also asked to watch for children who may dart between parked vehicles. 


Reducing fatalities and injuries especially on high traffic nights like Halloween is a priority for Manitoba’s Public Auto Insurer.

Northern Health Regions Shares Information on Influenza

With Flu season well underway, The Northern Health Region has some important information about influenza. The illness is a viral respiratory illness that is more serious than a common cold, it is not a gastrointestinal illness.


The vaccine protects you from 4 different influenza viruses and the vaccine needs to be given every year because viruses in the community change and may be slightly different each year. Because the flu viruses in the vaccine are dead you cannot catch influenza from the vaccine.


The vaccine is 60-90 percent effective for healthly adults but less effective for the elderly and people that are ill. Immunization is essential for those at risk of serious illness from influenza as well as caregivers, health care workers, and daycare workers.


The Primary Health Care Centre will be having flu clinics at the Roy H Johnston Arena on October 30th, November 6th, and November 20th from 1-6PM.
