Health officials in Saskatchewan have launched their annual immunization campaign for seasonal influenza, and walk-in clinics are starting to take place.

The first walk-in clinic for Kindersley took place yesterday in the boardroom at the Kindersley & District Health Centre. The official launch of the immunization campaign was Oct. 22. People are encouraged to get the flu shot to protect themselves and others.

“Vaccination is the vest way to protect yourself and your loved ones this influenza season,” Dr. Julie Kryzanowski, senior medical health officer for the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA), said on Monday as clinics opened across the province. “The influenza vaccine is free and it’s recommended for all adults and for children six months of age or older.”
