Albertans encouraged to get Flu Shot

The Alberta Government is asking Albertans to book their free influenza immunization appointments starting today.

Albertans can visit to book free-of-charge flu vaccinations, with appointments starting as early as Monday, October 18th.

Alberta Health Minister Jason Cooping in a press release stated, “Getting immunized has never been more important as Alberta hospitals are at capacity, strained to provide care for very sick people, including those with COVID-19. We must do all that we can to protect ourselves, our families and our neighbours from COVID-19 as well as the flu.
