Additional clinic to be held in Humboldt
Saskatoon – To accommodate anticipated demand for free influenza
immunization Saskatoon Health Region is moving its January 11 flu clinic from
West Winds Primary Health Centre to a larger location at Saskatoon City
Hospital. The Region is also extending the clinic hours. The Saskatoon clinic
will now take place:
Saturday January 11, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
City Hospital, Therapies Gym,
701 Queen Street, Saskatoon
The Region is also offering free parking in the Saskatoon City Hospital
parking lot for people who receive an influenza immunization that day.
For those outside Saskatoon, a drop-in clinic is planned in Humboldt:
Friday, January 10, 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Public Health Office
515-14th Avenue, Humboldt
“We are prepared to offer all available supplies of vaccine, which is about
1,500 doses to those who attend our remaining clinics,” says Karen Grauer,
manager of Population and Public Health.
People who previously made immunization appointments for next week will be
personally contacted and asked to come to the mass immunization clinic instead.
People who were immunized in the fall of 2013 do not need to be immunized
again. The vaccine they received is effective in preventing H1N1 and two other
strains of influenza through this flu season.
