Flu Shot
Combined with regular hand washing, the flu shot is the best way to protect yourself and others from the virus. Each year there is a new vaccine to protect against new strains of the influenza virus. The best time to get your influenza vaccine is early, between October and December, before the number of influenza cases increases in Canada.
On Friday November 8th, ICEAP invited the Max Bell Health Centre to Morriosn Campus in Glace Bay to administer free flu shots to all students and staff who wished to participate. Many chose to participate in the free clinic as getting the flu shot is one of the most effective ways to protect against influenza (flu). The shot is still effective even if you put off getting it until later in the season. It takes about two weeks after immunization before the flu shot gives you full protection.
