EOHU – Flu Season is Near

Flu Season is Near….Now’s the Time to Get Your Flu Shot!

October 10, 2017

The arrival of fall means flu season is just around the corner.  The flu shot is the best protection against the flu and is available at various locations throughout the five Eastern Counties and Cornwall, including through your healthcare provider, community health centres, participating pharmacies and at the Eastern Ontario Healthy Unit (EOHU).  For a list of all the places where you can get the flu shot for free, visit www.eohu.ca/flu.

The EOHU will offer the flu shot by appointment at all its offices.  Call 613-933-1375 or 1-800-267-7120 to book yours.  Appointments are open to everyone, but priority will be given to people with young children, physical limitations, medical considerations or special needs.  Residents must bring a piece of identification to their appointment.

Certain groups of people are at a higher risk of complications from the flu and are strongly encouraged to get immunized.  These include:

  • Children 6 months to less than 5 years of age
  • People aged 65 and older
  • People with chronic medical conditions

If you live with or provide care to someone who falls under one of the groups listed above, it is also highly recommended that you get immunized.  This simple step could help protect you and those around you.

“You need to get immunized every year to be protected because the viruses that cause the flu do change frequently” explains Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, Medical Officer of Health.  “The flu can cause serious illness and even death for some people.  The vaccine is safe and your best protection against the flu.  It’s free and available for everyone aged 6 months and older.”

For more information about the flu shot, call the EOHU at 613-933-1375 or at 1-800-267-7120.
