Alberta Health Services (AHS) is ensuring residents have ample opportunity to get their annual influenza immunization.


Alberta’s influenza immunization clinics open around the province on October 23, and all Albertans, aged six months and older, are eligible to receive influenza immunization free of charge
Though influenza immunization will remain available until March 31, it's important to get immunized as early in the season as possible, to reduce your risk of illness.
To support uptake of the immunization as early in the season as possible, in addition to regular influenza immunization clinics (http://www.albertahealthservices.ca/influenza/influenza.aspx), AHS will offer influenza immunizations in Bassano at a family-friendly Flu-Lapalooza health resource fair.  This will take place on Thursday October 26, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., at the Bassano Community Hall.
Flu-Lapalooza is aimed at young families and includes a jumping castle for the children, games, dental checks, and more.  Please note that all AHS influenza immunization clinics are open to all ages of patients, from six months of age and older
For complete clinic schedules and local clinic details, visit www.ahs.ca/influenza or call Health Link at 811.
