FLU SHOTS

Now that fall has arrived, unfortunately influenze season is just around the corner. Similar to last year, Shoppers Drug Mart pharmacists will be travelling to each of our schools/sites to administer the flu shots to District staff. These travelling clinics will take place on October 24 and 25 with a followup clinic at the SBO on November 1. Attached are details regarding the 2017 Staff Flu Immunization Clinic schedule, including the consent form.
