Alberta Health Services says Mass Flu Shot Clinics in Lethbridge Start October 24

Flu shot clinics are just around the corner.

Alberta Health Services is rolling out its annual flu shot campaign. In Lethbridge, mass clinics start on October 24th at the Main Pavilion of Exhibition Park. Local Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Lena Derie-Gillespie, says everyone over six months of age is eligible for a free influenza immunization. And, she says it takes about two weeks to provide immunity, so the earlier you get the shot, the better as the medical community doesn't ever know exactly when peak flu season will hit.
