It is that time of year again; the leaves change colour, the breeze is cooler and the sound of sniffles and coughing are in the air – Flu season.
Ottawa Public Health and various other health care partners want to help you stay healthy and avoid getting the flu by protecting yourself and others with the Flu Vaccine. Residents can get their flu vaccine at their health care providers office, family doctor, participating pharmacies, and community clinics. It is recommended residents contact participating pharmacies to ensure hours of service.
As Chair of the Board of Health, I encourage all residents to plan ahead to ensure that they protect themselves and those who may be close to them by getting yourself vaccinated. For more information on upcoming community clinics and influenza you can visit here.
