The Flu can crack your defenses
Every year, complications from the flu leave many vulnerable people at risk of hospitalization. This infection is caused by the influenza virus. Immunization is the most effective way for vulnerable people to prevent infection.
The Montréal West Island Integrated University Health and Social Services Centre will be providing the flu vaccine as of November 5.
Vaccination is offered free of charge to:
- anyone aged 6 months and older who suffers from a chronic illness (including pregnant women at any stage of pregnancy);
- healthy pregnant women in their 2nd or 3rd trimester;
- people aged 75 years and over;
- informal caregivers and those living with people in the above-mentioned groups;
- health professionals.
Anyone in good health aged 6 to 23 months and 60 to 74 years who wants to be vaccinated will receive the vaccine free of charge.
The vaccination campaign will be held at different sites in the community.
Thank you for protecting yourself and those around you from influenza.
