Influenza – the flu
Influenza is commonly referred to as the flu. It is a respiratory disease caused by a virus that affects the nose, throat, and lungs. Influenza is easily passed from person to person.
Preventing the flu
The best flu prevention is to get vaccinated every year before the start of the flu season. Everyone (6 months and older) should have influenza vaccine. It is free if you live, work, or go to school in Alberta.
Other good preventive habits are: (1) covering your hands whenever you cough, and (2) washing your hands to help prevent the spread of germs from turning into respiratory illnesses..
Flu shot vaccinations will be available starting October 24, 2022. Call the Clinic to book an appointment.
For anyone looking for the rapid test kits, they are available from the Thorhild Health Services Centre. Please call 780-398-3879 if you have any questions.
