By Tyler Sutherland

Flu ShotFlu clinics across the city will begin administering the annual influenza vaccine to the public on Tuesday.

The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority is running 12 clinics from October 22 to Saturday, October 26.

“It’s important to get the flu shot every year,” Health Minister Erin Selby said. “Each flu season is unique and getting the free shot can help keep your family and those you care about healthy this winter.”

Getting the flu shot is recommended for the very young and very old, pregnant women and people with chronic health conditions along with people with morbid obesity, Aboriginal people and children two- to four-years-old.

Clinics will open at 12 p.m. on Tuesday. Locations can be found on the WRHA website or by calling (204) 956-SHOT.
