Medicus Family Health Clinic and Pharmacy have started its campaign in encouraging Albertans to get a flu shot at its clinic along 91st Street in Edmonton.
Medicus Family Clinic and Pharmacy’s Joyce Samonte said that parents of children age five years old and below, who are their patients, are requested to give them a call at the clinic to book an appointment with the family doctors.
“That way, we will be ready to serve them,” said Samonte.
Some Filipino-Albertans have also walked in at the clinic and if pharmacists are not busy, they were readily served.
Medicus is located at 1536 91 Street SW and can be reached at telephone number (780) 757-7713.
The Alberta Health Services (AHS) website announced that the vaccine will be offered, free of charge, to all Albertans six months of age and older.
“Influenza is serious. Prevention is your protection,” AHS said.
