is hosting two Drop In Flu and COVID clinics on Friday
and Saturday for residents of the region
The 2022 strain of the flu seems to be taking much of its toll on younger people so far this season, including some very sad accounts of deaths in the last month recorded in British Columbia, said to be related to the Flu and Respiratory Syncytial virus RSV, as it both move further into the flu season.
The reason given for such a surge of cases coming from the lack of exposure to respiratory illnesses during the COVID period of the last two years, that owing to a range of protection methods that had been put in place in response to the COVID situation.
Towards providing as much access to the flu vaccine as possible, Northern Health has announced two Family Drop In Flu and COVID Clinics for Prince Rupert, set to take place at the Northern Health Prince Rupert Health Unit in the Ocean Centre on Friday and Saturday.
