November 12, 2010 - On Monday, November 15, the Health Unit will offer the first of five weekly Monday evening flu clinics. In November, each will run until 9:00 p.m. In December, the Monday evening clinics will end at 7:00 p.m.
The November 15th clinic will be held in the Heritage Building on the CLE Grounds from 2:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. For locations of other evening clinics, please see the flu clinic schedule at thunderbayflu.ca
The evening clinics make the flu shot more accessible for people who cannot attend clinics held during the day.
Each of the Monday clinics held in November will be followed by a second clinic on Tuesday in the same location, making it easier for people to plan for the flu shot. The Tuesday clinics will run from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
An electronic system is also being used at all City clinics to help the TBDHU move towards paperless registration. This card swiping system requires an Ontario driver’s license or Ontario health card, and it is optional. Anyone who visits the clinic can receive the immunization with or without identification.
Flu clinics run until December 13th. For more information about the flu or for a flu schedule, visit thunderbayflu.ca or call the flu line at 624-9082 and toll-free at 1-866-607-3337.
