It's flu (clinic) season!

It’s flu season - everybody’s favourite time of year (after Festivus .)

If you’d rather avoid the fever, cough, aches, sores, congestion, occasional vomiting and other… symptoms, you’ll probably want to get the flu shot ASAP if you haven’t already.

Your doctor's office.

Clinics will be held across the city at schools, hospitals and community buildings.
