Large flu shot clinic scheduled

There will be a drop-in immunization clinic Jan. 15 at the Schubert Centre

An additional 10,000 doses of influenza vaccine are scheduled to be received by the Interior Health Authority next week.

As a result, some changes have been made to upcoming public flu clinics in order to provide multiple options for the public to get a flu shot in a timely manner.

The Dec. 4 and Jan. 8 postponed clinics in Vernon have been rescheduled as a larger drop-in clinic Jan. 15 at the Schubert Centre. In addition, the Vernon Health Centre will offer by appointment clinics. The public is advised to call the health centre to book an appointment.

Changes have also been made to clinics in Kelowna, Penticton and Summerland.

All remaining vaccine will be distributed among community vaccine providers such as pharmacists and physicians. The public is advised to call ahead to community vaccine providers to ensure vaccine is available.
