In recent weeks, widespread influenza has been reported in some parts Canada. In response, there’s been a demand for more immunization clinics, and the Saskatoon Health Region is ready to deliver.
Back by popular demand, the health region is had a drop-in immunization clinic Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Northeast Health Centre.
The health region said there isn't a flu empidemic here, but they wanted to meet the public's demand.
This year, 20 children have died in US from influenza. These and other stories have led to a greater public awareness for immunization. In the first half hour of the clinic, 50 people were immunized.
For those who missed the clinic, a simple call to the public health office can book an appointment to get immunized.
