Health Unit Hosts Drive By Shooting!

 Book Your Drive Thru Flu Shot NOW!

Saturday, October 27,  Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit once again hosts a Drive Thru Flu Vaccination Clinic for people with conditions that would make it difficult to be immunized at a larger community clinic. The clinic, being held at Polito Ford Lincoln, Kent Street at Highway 7  Lindsay, allows people to drive in and be immunized without ever leaving the vehicle. Drivers and care givers accompanying the individual can also be immunized at the same time.
The Drive Thru Flu Vaccination clinic is geared to people who:
  •   are very frail with significant difficulty walking
  •   use a wheelchair
  •   are recovering from back or heart surgery
  •   are recovering from stroke or brain injury
  •   have serious auditory/visual conditions
  •   require a guide or companion dog
  •   are oxygen dependent
  •   are developmentally/mentally challenged
  •   have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease
    'It's often the people who have these medical conditions or special needs who are the most vulnerable to influenza and its complications,' says Linda McCarey, Director of Communicable Disease Control for the HKPR District Health Unit. 'The drive thru flu clinic is an easy and effective way to ensure people can protect themselves or their family members from getting ill with influenza this winter.'
    Book your appointment before 4 pm Friday, October 19 by calling the Health Unit at (705) 324-3569, ext. 220.
    'The flu shot is the safest and most effective way to prevent the spread of influenza this winter,' McCarey says, 'and in order to be protected, people need to be immunized.'
