Residents line up for flu shots




The first seasonal and H1N1 flu vaccination clinics in Drumheller began on Tuesday, October 27 at the Drumheller Health Centre. Judging by the parking on site, residents were eager to  get in line to protect themselves this flu season as a rough count of 200 cars crowded the area. Clinics continue today, October 28 at the Drumheller Health Centre and November 3, 4, 17, 18 and 25, and December 2, 8 and 9 at The Church of the Nazarene. Clinics are from 1 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Alberta has enough vaccine for every Albertan who needs and wants to be immunized. Those who need it most should get it as early as possible. Those who will benefit most from immunization include: People under 65 with chronic health conditions and their caregivers; Pregnant women; Children six months to less than five years of age and their caregivers; People living in remote and isolated settings or communities; Health care workers involved in pandemic response or the delivery of essential health care services; Household contacts and care providers of persons at high risk who cannot be immunized or may not respond to vaccines.
