“GET YOUR FLU SHOT” SAYS LOCAL HEALTH UNIT
The Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) is urging local residents to get their flu shots. “You need to get immunized every year to be protected because the viruses that cause the flu do change frequently,” explained Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, Medical Officer of Health. “The flu can cause serious illness and even death for some people.” The flu shot is available at various locations throughout the five Eastern Counties and Cornwall, including through healthcare providers, community health centres, participating pharmacies and at the Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU). To find out more about the flu and the flu shot, visit www.ontario.ca/flu. The EOHU will offer the flu shot by appointment at all its offices. Call 613-933-1375 or 1 800 267-7120 to book an appointment.
