It’s that dreaded time of year again: flu season.
The influenza vaccine is the best way to prevent the illness and is recommended each year for everyone over the age of six months. Last year, more than 1.1 million doses of the flu vaccine were administered across Alberta. However, that only represents about 28 per cent of the population.
NAIT Health Services, in partnership with Shoppers Drug Mart Kingsway, is pleased to offer free flu clinics again this year to staff, students and the public at all three campuses.
There is no pre-registration required. Bring your Alberta Health Care Card, wear short sleeves and drop in to the following clinics:
Tuesday Oct. 24; 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. – Centre of Applied Technology (CAT) Room 202
Monday Oct. 30; 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. – Main Campus, North Lobby
