ARNPRIOR – The Arnprior and District Family Health Team will hold two Flu Vaccine Clinics in November at The Arnprior Legion.
“These clinics are available to all community members,” Arnprior Regional Health (ARH) communications manager Melissa McDermott released in a statement Oct. 27.
Flu vaccines are available at the clinics on a walk-in-only basis and will be held on Nov. 7 and November 21 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The Ministry of Health has explained the importance of getting your flu shot this year.
“Vaccination against influenza will be important this fall given the potential for the co-circulation of other respiratory diseases, such as COVID-19 and RSV,” the ministry released in a statement.
It provides individuals and their communities with important protection against influenza and helps minimize the impact on the healthcare system.
The flu vaccine is available to all individuals six months of age and older who live, work, or go to school in Ontario.
“The Arnprior and District Family Health Team’s Flu Vaccine Clinics will not offer COVID-19 vaccinations this year,” McDermott said.
For more information on the availability of COVID-19 vaccines, please contact your local pharmacy or visit one of the Renfrew County and District Health Unit clinics (https://www.rcdhu.com/).
The Flu Vaccine Clinics will be held at The Arnprior Legion, 49 Daniel St. North. The hall entrance is at the right-rear side of the building. The clinic is walk-in only, and individuals must bring their valid OHIP card. Masks are required.
