Public influenza immunization clinics to resume this week

Public influenza immunization clinics are resuming in Saskatchewan. To read the provincial news release, click here.

Prairie North Health Region's clinics will begin again Thursday, November 1, according to the clinics’ original schedule. 

Clinics had been temporarily suspended as a result of a Health Canada review of flu vaccine made by the pharmaceutical firm Novartis. The review has been completed, and Health Canada has confirmed that the vaccine is safe for use. Health Canada lifted its precautionary hold on the vaccines today and Saskatchewan has announced that immunization clinics across the province may resume.

No public clinics had been scheduled for today – Halloween – anywhere in Prairie North Health Region.

Residents are reminded that the most effective way to protect yourself, your family and community from getting influenza is to be immunized. Everyone is strongly encourage to get their flu vaccine at a local clinic.

People who have already received a flu shot with a Novartis vaccine in Saskatchewan this year do not need to be revaccinated.

Prairie North will assess the situation over the next few days to determine if the four clinics missed by the temporary suspension of immunizations need to be rescheduled.
