The change of seasons often brings an influenza outbreak. Although influenza activity generally peaks around January, it takes the body about two weeks after vaccination to develop antibodies that will protect against influenza virus infection. For that reason, it's important to get vaccinated before the seasonal outbreak, especially if you fall into the high risk category. 

The high risk flu immunizations are available to those considered ‘high risk’ by appointment only starting October 19, 2020. To book an appointment please call 519-888-4096.
