Population and Public Health Services: Seasonal Influenza
As a result of reduced demand for influenza vaccine appointments, the RQHR Influenza Appointment Line (306-766-7878) will close on Friday, February 7 at 4:30 p.m.
Children under the age of nine years who had one dose this year but who never had influenza vaccine in a previous year, require a second dose four weeks after the first dose. Appointments for those children may be made by calling 306-766-7500.
Other members of the public who are still interested in receiving an influenza vaccination beginning February 10 should contact 306-766-7500. People living in rural RQHR are asked to contact their local Public Health Office.
In total, as of February 4, RQHR public health staff vaccinated approximately 48,000 people at this flu season’s clinics, beginning in October 2013. Approximately 13,000 of those vaccinations have been provided since Dec. 30, 2013.
