We are seeing a sharp increase in illness and hospitalizations due to flu, particularly among children. Flu vaccines provide protection from flu and can help prevent serious illness and hospitalization. Everyone 6 months of age and over is eligible for a flu vaccine.
Everyone is encouraged to book an appointment, using the Get Vaccinated system or by calling 1-833-838-2323. For more information about getting your flu shot, and to see the current clinic schedule and drop in hours, visit www.fraserhealth.ca/flu.
