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, AHS will offer influenza immunizations in Medicine Hat at a family-friendly Flu-Lapalooza health resource fair.
This will take place from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday, October 26 at the Stampede Grounds, in the Cypress Centre Auditorium
