Saskatchewan's publicly-funded seasonal influenza immunizations will be available across the province beginning October 11th.

As in the previous year, the publicly-funded seasonal influenza vaccine will be available, free of charge, through public health clinics and physicians offices to any resident who wants to receive it.

However, vaccination is particularly recommended for persons at higher risk of becoming seriously ill with influenza such as adults 65 and over, persons with a chronic health condition or severe obesity, pregnant women and children from six months to 23 months.

And vaccinations are also recommended for individuals in close contact with those at high risk of influenza-related complications.

To find the nearest flu clinic, you can contact your public health office, physician, regional health authority or call the HealthLine.

Information on clinics will be available on the websites of regional health authorities.
