Getting your annual flu vaccine is an important way to help protect yourself, your family and high risk groups in your community against seasonal flu. It will also help reduce the burden on Canada’s health care system during this unprecedented time.
The flu vaccine will not protect against COVID-19, but it will help reduce your risk of getting the flu and COVID-19 at the same time. Having both illnesses at the same time could put you at a higher risk for severe illness.
Ottawa Public Health will hold a mobile flu clinic in the parking lot of AMA Community Centre. Here are the details:
Date: Wednesday, Dec. 9
